Safe Work Australia has released guidance material on exposure to vibration in workplaces for workers as well as those managing workers that may be exposed to vibration.

Every year thousands of workers sustain injuries or contract illnesses related to vibration either hand-arm vibration (HAV) and whole-body vibration (WBV). These usually occur while workers operate powered hand held or hand guided machinery such as angle grinders, drills, jackhammers and chainsaws or while travelling in vehicles, as construction workers often do.
