How do YOU monitor HAVS exposure levels?
The Control of Vibration at Work Regulations 2005 aims to ensure that individuals do not experience harm to their health due to hand-arm vibration. As an employer, you should be focused on managing and mitigating the risks associated with exposure to vibration.
But how do you effectively measure and monitor the exposure levels?
You can use manufacturers data and then add the K factor, use assumed data which is accurate only at the time it was measured, use tool timers based upon the values above or ask the users to tell you how long they’ve used the tools for and then use the HSE ready reckoner…..it isn’t easy is it!
Relying on “guesstimated” data isn’t enough when it comes to preventing potentially life changing disabilities, which can result in large fines or claims against employers.
With our simple, accurate and cost-effective, continuous measuring and monitoring system, you can accurately measure each individual use, monitor and track the vibration levels each individual team member is exposed to and even identify any rogue tools emitting more vibrations than you thought or indeed than they should.
