FRC International Whole Body Vibration & Health Surveillance Seminars

FRC International is hosting a unique 2 day event for the professional RIB and high speed craft sector at the RNLI Lifeboat College, Poole UK in July 2012.

The Whole Body Vibration Technical Seminar on Tuesday 10th July brings together the latest information on this major issue affecting all professional RIB and HSC operators.

The EC Vibration Directive is driving change in Europe with the global fast boat industry contributing to a changing approach to Whole Body Vibration (WBV) and Repetitive Shock (RS) worldwide.

The WBV Technical Seminar programme brings the latest information to front line users and their equipment suppliers. Topics include considerations for WBV action plans plus how organisations are mitigating WBV and RS. Expert speakers will examine new technology, measurement and analysis methods plus Exposure Limit Value (ELV) exemption guidance.

The Health Surveillance Awareness Seminar on Wednesday 11th July addresses a further requirement of the EC Vibration Directive. Professional organisations attending WBV awareness courses have expressed a high level of interest in adopting varying levels of health surveillance including high tech solutions.

The Health Surveillance Awareness Seminar programme includes occupational health for the fast boat sector plus occupational fitness and the benefits of prehabilitation versus rehabilitation. Expert speakers will examine monitoring, measurement, data collection and analysis with the objective of using results to improve duty-of-care and reduce risk.

The RNLI Lifeboat College is a superb waterfront facility located within five minutes walk of the historic maritime port of Poole.
