For the designers and manufacturers of HAVs
, such an arrangement makes economic sense; it would be far better for the HAV
to limit the amount of damage it causes in an accident than it would be for it to take unnecessary and economically costly decisions in an attempt to save the lives of the passengers inside the vehicle.
-- First, it proposes to exempt HAVs
from certain Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS);
has been detected in recently imported captive primates after spontaneous outbreaks of acute hepatitis in animal facilities, but the definitive hosts of this virus have remained obscure (2,3).
This enables pre-existing HAVS
sufferers to continue work in a controlled environment where exposure levels are safely reduced, preventing further deterioration.
Shaped like giant, inflatable plane wings, hybrid air vehicles (HAV
) are heavier than air, so once resting on the ground, they don't need to be tied down to prevent them floating away, eliminating the need for ground support.
Reflex sympathetic vasoconstriction also may account for increased severity of noise-induced hearing loss in HAVS
The prevalence of HAVS
in worker populations that have used vibrating tools has ranged from 6% to 100% (1).
Five million people in the UK, out of a population of 60 million, are exposed to HAV
and up to two million of these are at a potentially dangerous level of risk.
Castle Group says the purpose of the Webinar is to enable visitors to start tackling HAVS
in the workplace and ensure that employees are protected from vibration exposure injuries, and organisations are protected from injury claims and fines.
Vibration exposure can lead to hand arm vibration syndrome (HAVS
), a condition that is widespread and affects tens of thousands of workers using an extensive range of hand-held power tools.
