Synopsis
Produced in association with Contractors Mechanical Plant Engineers (CMPE), Costain, Health and Safety Executive, Loughborough University and Spillard Safety Systems Ltd.

Recent legislation within the UK has made the management of vibration exposure at the workplace a legal requirement. This DVD serves as a learning aid for all who may come into contact with whole body vibration (WBV) at the workplace, including workers, health and safety representatives, and others. It is aimed principally at explaining WBV in relation to the Control of Vibration at Work Regulations (2005) and includes reference to:
  • relevant legislation;
  • health effects from exposure to WBV;
  • assessing WBV risks; and
  • practical guidance for minimising WBV risks.

The DVD was produced in close collaboration with the Health and Safety Executive.
