HSE FAQ confirms HAVwear is a suitable tool for assessing Hand-Arm Vibration exposure risk.

What HAVwear & Reactec Analytics can do for you


Prioritise & verify the effectiveness of controls

  • Clarifies risk assessments.
  • Identify the source of exposure and prioritise highest risk areas.
  • Aids design and recording of controls based on data analysis.
  • Review controls and assess effectiveness.

Robust & credible evidence to assist defence of claims

  • Auditable data provides a more robust defence
  • Individual daily exposure and tool usage reports.
  • Intervention recording.
  • Reduced cost of individual exposure record collation.

Assess real life risk of HAV exposure

  • Personal instead of generic risk management.
  • Real-time exposure monitoring for a credible risk assessment
  • Practical system to monitor individial daily exposure.
  • Operator awareness of personal exposure supports behavioural change.

Unique ability to determine HAV exposure by trigger time & real-life exposure risk

1. Following regulations and latest HSE guidance use a HAVwear as a tool timer with a pre-defined vibration.
2. The HAVWEAR watch has the revolutionary ability to provide a more representative assessment of vibration risk - based on the vibration transmitted to the tool user. 

+ Real-time calculation and display of personal HAV daily exposure points.
+ Operator alerted when personal EAV and ELV exposure values are exceeded.

What is Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome?

There is no cure for HAVS, only prevention 2 million UK workers exposed to high levels

300,000 suffering advanced stages*

You can develop HAVS within 6 months.

10% of employees exposed at the exposure action level will contract HAVS within 12 years or within 6 years if exposed to the exposure limit level. (HSE)

“Exposure below the Action Value cannot be considered safe...” (HSE)

Tarmac - Paul Fleetham, National Contracting Director

“Paper based systems never really worked, the HAVmeter replaced that system with the latest technology which allows us to accurately measure and monitor our employees’ exposure to HAVS.” “After rolling it out we are seeing a positive result from the workforce who like the system and think it is easy to use. It’s great for self monitoring and the tool tags can also be used as a tracking device.” “It’s very difficult to quantify what sort of amount of exposure an individual has had - the HAVmeter is the perfect solution”
