Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) risk is one of many issues facing employers and employees.
The issue has been to prevent, not identify HAVS which requires all working parties to work together to not only raise, but maintain awareness.
The Reactec Analytics Platform brings together all the stakeholders to create a safer working environment, by more accurately and effectively assessing and managing Hand Arm Vibration risk. The system provides managers, team leaders and tool operators with access to intelligent and practical online reports that help identify who is more at risk and the reasons why, to support effective risk reduction action plans.
Tool operators are able to not only track but relate their exposure levels to tool usage in real-time to educate and maintain awareness. Online reports reveal which workers have exceeded HSE daily thresholds, which are most at risk from exposure plus the reasons why.
The monitoring of trigger time can also identify over-reliance on specific tools to re-address the tool workload balance and reduce premature tool replacements or failure. The platform also informs of tool vibration trends to highlight potential early tool maintenance or operator training. This further protects tool operators from higher levels of vibration and tool failure.
Stirling Council have implemented the Reactec Analytics Platform across it’s many departments to remove the guess work and uncertainty of workers being over exposed and more effectively identify and measure their risk reduction activity.
