National Hazard Exposure Worker Surveillance Vibration exposure and the provision of vibration control measures in Australian

This report focuses on the exposure of Australian workers to vibration and the control measures that are provided in workplaces that eliminate, reduce or control worker exposure to vibration. The aims of this report are threefold. The first aim is to describe patterns of exposure to vibration in conjunction with patterns of vibration control provisions with respect to industry, occupation and other relevant demographic and employment variables. The second aim is to make recommendations, where possible, for the development of work health and safety and workers compensation policy. The final aim of this report is to provide researchers in this field with clear and constructive directions for future research.

Gathering intelligence from referrals to HSL for hand-arm vibration syndrome

This report details three separate pieces of work, which are linked by the fact that they involve surveying individuals assessed for hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS) at the Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL), or the customers responsible for referring them.

Les outils portatifs pneumatiques

Protégez vos oreilles et vos mains
Les outils portatifs pneumatiques génèrent des niveaux de bruit et de vibrations qui, avec les années, peuvent entraîner des effets néfastes sur la santé. La durée et l'intensité de l'exposition au bruit peuvent causer la surdité, tandis que la durée et l'intensité de l'exposition à des vibrations peuvent entraîner le syndrome de Raynaud (blanchiment des doigts) et des troubles musculo-squelettiques. L'IRSST a mesuré les niveaux de bruit et de vibrations d'outils portatifs pneumatiques utilisés dans les ateliers de réparation de véhicules automobiles.
