The Control of Vibration at Work Regulations 2005 aim to protect workers from the risks of hand-arm and whole-body vibration at work. The regulations require employers to assess and control the risks of vibration to their employees, and to take steps to prevent or reduce exposure to vibration. The regulations apply to all workers exposed to vibration at work, and to all sectors of industry where vibration may occur, such as construction, mining, manufacturing, and transport. The regulations set specific exposure limits and require employers to provide training, health surveillance, and information to workers.
The Control of Vibration at Work Regulations 2005 requires employers to take action to protect their workers from the risks of vibration exposure. Employers are required to identify and assess the level of vibration that employees are exposed to, and take action to control exposure levels. Employers must also provide training to their workers and ensure that exposure limits are not exceeded. To demonstrate compliance with the regulations, employers must keep records of exposure levels and the actions taken to control risks. They must also provide their workers with health surveillance where exposure is above the action level or limit value.
There are no specific exemptions to The Control of Vibration at Work Regulations 2005. However, the regulations do not apply to self-employed people who do not employ others, nor do they apply to work that is not part of a trade, business or profession. Additionally, the regulations provide for some flexibility in terms of the action levels and exposure limit values where it is not technically feasible to control exposure to vibration.
