Risk of Hand-arm Vibration injury
These tools may cause Hand-arm Vibration Syndrome injury if their use is not adequately managed.
We advise you to carry out a risk assessment and to implement measures such as; limiting exposure time [i.e. actual trigger time, not total time at work], job rotation, ensuring the tools are used correctly, ensuring the tools are maintained according to our recommendations, and ensuring that the operators wear personal protective equipment [PPE] particularly gloves and clothing to keep them warm and dry.
Employers should consider setting up a programme of health surveillance to establish a benchmark for each operator and to detect any early symptoms of vibration injury.
We are not aware of any PPE that provides protection against vibration injury by attenuating vibration emissions. See ‘Specifications’ section for vibration emission data.
Further advice is available from our Technical Department.
Oil the tool daily before use.
