Health & Safety at Work report yet another hefty fine for a company failing to manage HAV risk. (https://www.healthandsafetyatwork.com/content/%C2%A3400k-fine-after-aerospace-company-ignored-havs-22-years)
And this is the really interesting bit…
“Employees should have undergone health screening to identify symptoms of HAVS at an early stage, which would have prevented the disease from progressing to a disabling condition, according to the HSE.”
This appears to suggest that firms should manage HAVS risk by waiting until workers show symptoms, then take steps. At Curotec, we believe that’s Victorian-style health & safety. And when the technology exists to accurately measure vibration exposure in real time – there’s simply no excuse not to use it.
