|About the instructor||Beno Groothoff|
An increase in the number of hand-arm and whole-body injuries caused by vibration is the consequence of the use of modern machinery and equipment. There have been significant changes to the way vibration is assessed, particularly relating to shocks. The release of the latest Australian Standard for Whole-Body Vibration has placed renewed emphasis on vibration exposure in the workplace. Evaluation of hand-arm and whole-body vibration involves the assessement of risk associated with exposure to vibration.
Evaluation of hand-arm and whole-body vibration involves the assessment of risk associated with exposure to vibration. During this one day course the attendees will gain the practical, hands-on knowledge and confidence in evaluating vibration in relation to human health, interference with activities, discomfort and motion sickness.
