Grammar notes
The level of daily exposure to vibration for any worker which must not be exceeded. For hand-arm vibration the daily exposure limit value is 5 m/s2 A(8), whereas for whole body vibration the daily exposure limit value is 1.15 m/s2 A(8).
Where the exposure of an employee to vibration is usually below the exposure action value but varies markedly from time to time, it may occasionally exceed the exposure limit value, provided that
(a) any exposure to vibration averaged over one week is less than the exposure limit value;
(b) there is evidence to show that the risk from the actual pattern of exposure is less than the corresponding risk from constant exposure at the exposure limit value;
(c) risk is reduced to as low a level as is reasonably practicable, taking into account the special circumstances;
(d) the employees concerned are subject to increased health surveillance.
