Bus Maintenance Depot, Hertfordshire

RSK Acoustics was instructed to undertake the assessment of hand arm vibration for handheld powered tools (jackhammers and drills) at a bus maintenance depot in Hertfordshire.
The vibration survey was undertaken during a normal shift period whilst the equipment was being used for specific tasks and under realistic working conditions. Observations were made as to usage cycles of plant/tools and employees were interviewed to establish work patterns and to allow exposure time to be calculated.
