The Importance of Hand Arm Vibration Training
Hand arm vibration syndrome and carpal tunnel syndrome affect thousands of people. Symptoms include numbness and tingling in the hands and can result in difficulty with gripping objects.
Thousands of workers use vibrating tools in their day to day jobs, putting them at risk of health complications after extended exposure. Control measures can lessen this risk considerably, so it's incredibly important that staff know how to protect themselves from the dangers.
