When addressing HAVS risks, where there are things you can do to reduce risks from vibration, that are reasonably practicable they should be done no matter what the risk level.
The HSE continuous reduction process is quite clear on how to assess and mitigate risks but there are many companies who still fail to either apply or maintain this requirement.
Even though there is no legal requirement for continual monitoring and recording of vibration exposure the HSE agree that digital monitoring “can be a useful tool for carrying out a risk assessment or for monitoring the preventive measures in place to ensure that they are effective.”
The Reactec Analytics platform helps employers to address their HAVS risks to aid the design and management of risk reduction controls required by the HSE.
To help a new quick reference guide on how the Reactec Analytics platform support employers to comply with The Control of Vibration at Work Regulations 2005, is available to make what was once difficult or inaccurate, reasonable and practical.
