It is important to avoid vibration disturbance to neighbours and the local community, as well as minimising the impact upon operatives.
Vibration should be monitored and measured on site, to ensure that it is minimised as much as possible.
The use of safety PPE and tools, to measure vibration, can be particularly effective.
The aim was to identify activities where impact was greatest and plan preventative action more intelligently.
