Welcome to the CHASAC revised guidance sheets for Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAV’s).

These sheets replace the original ones produced by CHASAC (Castings Health and Safety Advisory Committee) and in line with HSE & SHIFT policy, have been written in a user friendly manner.

These sheets will be of interest to anyone who works with vibrating tools, manages employees who use vibrating tools or those persons undertaking risk assessments in their workplace for using vibrating tools.

These sheets can be downloaded and printed off at no cost and can be issued either to employees directly, placed on notice boards in areas where vibrating tools are used or can be incorporated into training and awareness sessions provided by employers.  They can also be copied to intranet systems for use internally.
