Resumen The Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL) in the United Kingdom has provided a Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) diagnostic service for individuals under health surveillance over the past seven years. Essentially, these are vibration-exposed workers who are referred by the enterprises' own occupational health services, external occupational health providers and general practitioners, for a diagnosis and staging concerning HAVS. HSL have access to data from 656 individuals who have given consent for their information to be used for research purposes. This report details and analyses the information that has been collected from this referral cohort and details the nature of the health problems, the vibration exposure and employment history in these individuals. It attempts to answer some questions that are of direct relevance to HSE's Noise and Vibration Programme's health-related goals.
