Operator health and safety is important to Atlas Copco and our partners

Expert Corner_Safety and Health_1400Safety is one of our values at Atlas Copco, and it is also a key topic for our customers. For that reason, we have created an Expert Hub dedicated to health and safety where we share tips to optimize worker health and safety.

A common source of worker discomfort and long-term injury is vibration. Common in grinding and other material removal applications, vibration can lead to Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome. One symptom of Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome is vibration-induced white finger. White finger is irreversible, and potentially painful when attacks occur. To assist our partners, the Expert Corner on our website includes a Vibration Exposure Calculator that can be used online to identify operators’ exposure level and potential risks.

Additional content in our health and safety Expert Corner includes:

We believe this new Expert Corner is interesting and can be very helpful to safety managers. We recommend reviewing it if you are involved in health and safety at your facility.
