The 15th International Conference on Hand-Arm Vibration will be held in Nancy (France). It is organised under the patronage of the International Advisory Committee on Hand-Arm Vibration.
Dates and venue of the Conference
6-9 June 2023
1 Place de la République
In many work sectors such as building, mechanical construction, metalworking and even maintenance of green spaces, workers use vibrating machines on a daily basis, whether hand-held machines (grinders, chipping hammers, etc.) or hand-guided machines (vibratory tampers, vibrating plate compactors, etc.). Regular use of these vibrating machines is likely to cause neurological (sensations of numbness and tingling in the fingers and hands), vascular (Raynaud's syndrome) or osteoarticular (disorders of the wrist and elbow joints) pathologies.
From 6 to 9 June 2023, INRS will be holding the 15th International Conference on Hand-Arm Vibration (ICHAV). It is being organised under the patronage of the International Advisory Committee on Hand-Arm Vibration. It will bring together scientists from different disciplines who will present the latest knowledge about hand-arm vibration so that there can be a better understanding and prevention of the effects on workers. This multidisciplinary conference is intended for scientists and also occupational physicians, machine manufacturers, metrologists, prevention officers, standardisation groups and government agencies.
A workshop will be devoted to exposure to high-frequency vibrations (> 1000 Hz) known as ultravibrations. These can be impulse vibrations, generated by percussive machines (chipping hammers, nail guns, vibratory tampers for example), or stationary vibrations, generated by rotary machines with very high rotation speeds (ultra high-speed grinders and dental turbines for example). The latest developments in high-frequency metrology, pulse signal processing and health effects will be discussed in this workshop.
