Limited has been established for the assessment of Hand Arm Vibration
Our aim is to provide medico-legal and health surveillance reports for vibration exposed individuals, IN ANY INDUSTRY. Our doctors have seen several thousand cases of workers from steel related industries, construction and the utilities, along with the miners.
The assessors have been involved in examining the coal miners on behalf of the D.T.I., for a number of years. The comprehensive assessment consists of a full occupational and medical history along with a clinical examination, including dexterity testing and grip strength; and full standardised laboratory assessment, including thermal aesthesiometry, vibro-tactile threshold measurement and cold provocation testing. We would report the results based on the Stockholm Workshop Staging, being the most comprehensive and objective staging currently available.
The Thermal Aesthesiometry, Vibrotactile Threshold, cold provocation tests, grip and dexterity tests are performed using appropriate equipment in a standardised manner recommended by the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research, Southampton University and the Health and Safety Executive.
