Why did the Advertising Standards Authority have to rule on what should be common knowledge? What is HAVS monitoring best practice, what do insurers say and could zero monitoring be the best option? You would have thought that the issues surrounding wrist-mounted vibration monitors had already been thoroughly settled. Apparently not so in the minds of some. The following is an outline of some of the very costly myths associated with

ASA ruling: wrist mounted HAV monitors do not measure to the standard … not suitable for regulatory risk assessment..
4 new things you should know about noise risk reduction best practice in industry
We are living in interesting times in the field of hearing damage risk reduction due to the host of new (and forthcoming) ways to reduce risk dramatically. Here are 4 new things that you should know about… Hearing test free app: launched by the WHO for World Hearing Day (03/03/19) for both Android and Apple, the hearWHO App allows anyone to check and monitor their hearing over time. Running the app is
Wrist mounted vibration transducers – not again!
Once more there are claims that wrist/glove mounted vibration transducers can be used to assess HAV risk in operators as per the British Standard (BS5349). No they can’t. Thank you for listening… I would suggest that anyone considering using any of the wrist (or glove) mounted automated transducer measurement systems in an attempt to measure vibration (as against using them as tool timers linked to properly measured tool vibration levels) to assess operator exposure should
