Property company fined £600,000

A Buckinghamshire property management and development organisation has been fined £600,000 and ordered to pay costs of £13,995 after five employees developed Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS).  An investigation by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) found the company failed to assess or manage the risks associated with vibrating tools. It also failed to provide suitable training or health surveillance for its maintenance workers and failed to maintain and replace tools which increased vibration levels.
