Section 14-12. Medical examination of employees who are exposed to mechanical vibrations

The employer shall ensure that employees are offered suitable medical examinations if they are exposed to vibrations that exceed the action values for vibrations, or if the exposure gives reason to suspect that lower exposure levels can be harmful to health.
The medical examinations shall be able to identify any adverse health effects caused by vibrations and provide the basis for preventive measures in the undertaking or other measures that can reduce the risk of harm to the employee's health.
Based on the employee's health condition and the type, level and duration of exposure, the medical practitioner shall decide the content of the examination and how frequently the employee should be examined.
The employee shall be informed about the result of the medical examination. The employee shall be informed of any need for medical examinations after the exposure has stopped.
