HAVS is becoming increasingly common in certain occupational groups and organisations. Sadly, if not diagnosed early, it can lead to serious and permanent disability.
Templar Medical has assisted many organisations whose employees are exposed to vibration and can provide helpful advice regarding HAVS risk assessment, policy, implementation, control measures, health surveillance and much more.
David has completed mandatory training for the assessment and management of HAVS cases, conducted at the HSE laboratories, and holds the Faculty of Occupational Medicine’s (FOM) certificate of competence.
David would normally conduct a Tier 4 assessment (which must be conducted by a HSE approved doctor), after another OH professional e.g. nurse, had conducted Tiers 1-3.
