Workers exposed to vibration at work are at risk of developing Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS).

The Control of Vibration at Work Regulations were introduced with the purpose of making sure that workers did not suffer ill health due to exposure to vibration at work.

This HAVS Vibration Awareness elearning training course has been developed to provide those working with vibrating equipment, with an understanding of the risk associated with hand and arm vibration exposure, the potential health hazards and the controls required to reduce risk.

This online course helps employers and employees understand the risks associated when working with hand held vibrating equipment.

This HAVS Awareness online training course contains a variety of text based content, along with image, video, quiz, and other content as necessary to assist your learning.

The HAVS Awareness training course has been developed to be easy to understand and simple to navigate.

On completion of the course you will be assessed with a multiple choice test. Once you have passed the assessment you will be able to download your certificate for your records. The certificate is supplied in PDF format.

You can proceed through the HAVS Awareness course at your own pace, and repeat the content as many times as you wish until you feel ready for the final assessment.
