AuthorMaritime and Coastguard Agency
The objectives of the 'Code of Practice for Controlling Risks due to Hand-transmitted Vibration on Ships' are to: Explain the duties of employers regarding the assessment and control of health risks associated with exposure to hand-transmitted vibration in the maritime environment. Provide sufficient information to enable employers to assess the risks of injury to seafarers from hand-transmitted vibration. Set out measures to be taken to control that risk, either by appropriate design and use of equipment or by the use of methods to limit exposures to hand-transmitted vibration. Set out the requirements to monitor the health of seafarers. Discuss the employer's duties to inform seafarers of the risks and consequences of exposure to hand-transmitted vibration, and to provide adequate training for the safe use of vessels, machinery and tools.
