ATEX HAVMETER 

 

 

The Reactec Analytics Platform is a mobile tracking and management solution, which includes the ATEX HAVMETER, to better protect employees from Hand Arm Vibration exposure. 
 

ATEX certified

The ATEX HAVmeter is designed and manufactured to the requirements for Intrinsically Safe apparatus for potentially explosive atmospheres to comply with European ATEX and International IECEx directives required for potentially hazardous and explosive environments.
 

Simplifies and aids risk reduction plans

The Reactec Analytics Platform monitors in real-time, worker exposure using the HSE points system. It also provides practical and useful information to help implement and measure the most effective actions to support HSE guidelines.

Brings together all duty holders

Through using the ATEX HAVMETER and Reactec Analytics reports, responsibility and awareness is shared with team leaders, depot and project managers. Providing unlimited access to easy-to-understand reports both online or by email, all duty holders can remain actively involved in risk reduction activity on a daily and management review level.

 

Reduces uncertainty of exposure

The Reactec Analytics Platform removes the uncertainty of tool use by tracking exact trigger time of tools used and by which operators. An ATEX HAVMETER can also be personalised to support operators on reduced points due to medical issues. The ATEX HAVMETER measures variations in tool vibration magnitudes across work schedules and operators to help identify a more representative risk, poor tool performance and utilisation.

 

Streamlining vibration monitoring means more time to reduce exposure

The HAVmeter completely automates the entire monitoring and reporting process. With easy access to operator exposure level records and tool usage, managers can utilise their time to proactively manage HAVs exposure risk with more accuracy and efficiency than a manual system.

 

 


 

 

Features

 

 

 

Support employee behavioural change   

HAVMETER complies with European ATEX and International IECEx directives
Real-time exposure points calculation & display Exposure data automatically transmitted online (via Basestation)
HAVMETER fully integrated with Reactec Analytics Reports Streamlines and simplies the HAVs monitoring process, reduces human error and is auditable.

 


 

Analytics Reports

All exposure and tool data is saved and transmitted via a Basestation to enable employers to view online exposure data to better understand how to reduce and remove the risks.

 

 

The HAVs data reports include individual worker exposure and related tool use to pinpoint exposure hot spots. These reports can help prioritise and aid the design and management of risk reduction controls. These controls are required by the HSE to fully comply with the control of vibration at work regulations.

HSE exposure points

 
For those of you unfamiliar with HSE HAV risk assessment exposure points it is a system to allow workers to understand their daily exposure levels and limits. The points are calculated based on how long a tool is used and its vibration magnitude. The higher the vibration magnitude the quicker the operator accumulates exposure points.

Testimonial:

Everton Football Club - Richard Cairns, Health & Safety Manager

“Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome is not just a problem for people using industrial power tools in the construction or manufacturing sectors – it can affect anyone who regularly uses other vibrating equipment including mowers and strimmers. We have dozens of lawnmowers that are in daily use at Goodison Park and our training complex at Finch Farm, so we have to have a monitoring system that is simple and effective. “In the past we relied on timesheets and individual record-keeping to monitor vibration exposure, but the HAVmeter system is a far superior method of doing this. All of the information is collated by the devices and provides us with a comprehensive overview of how much exposure each member of staff is subjected to. If they reach the safe limit stipulated by the HSE, then they are alerted to the danger at once – meaning there is no chance of over-exposure. “However, it is not just a good tool for preventing injuries. The system allows us to generate reports about the vibration levels of our equipment, so we can identify which machines need to be replaced or upgraded. It’s a very versatile piece of kit that will continue to be hugely beneficial to our groundskeeping operations in the future.”
