As part of our ongoing strategy to improve the wellbeing of our staff, we are continually looking at ways of ensuring that our systems and processes are designed with Health, Safety & Wellbeing in mind.
In an effort to obtain “real time” exposure of our operatives to Hand Arm Vibration (HAVS), we have recently been trialling several pieces of equipment.
As a result of these trials, we have decided to introduce the HAVI system. This automatically links a monitor that is attached to the tool being used to a HAVI watch, which worn by the operative and records this information.
The information is then sent to a central database on a computer, and gives us actual information relating to individual exposure for every operative and process within the company.
