Reactec Training Aid

Reactec Training Aid

 
 
Optimise in real-time tool operator productivity and risk, with the Reactec Training Aid App   
 
Now all HAVwear users can be monitored by colleagues using the Training Aid App on a RASOR.
 
By combining the RASOR training aid and HAVwear you can proactively optimise tool choices and usage - to better manage productivity and risk than previously considered possible. 
 

 


 

Training Aid benefits

 

Train colleagues to: 


 
 Improve operator tool technique



Better assess tool condition



Ensure the best tool for the job


 



 

 

The tool operator can change their tool technique such as grip, push force, etc to see if the effect increases or reduces their exposure risk.
 
While standing alongside a tool operator who is wearing a HAVwear watch, the RASOR user can view the rate at which the tool operator’s exposure will be accumulated based on the real time vibration experienced by that operator. 
 
 
Example of variation in exposure from tool use as shown using the training aid.
 
How it works
 
 
If the tool under test has a HAVwear Tool Tag attached then the Training Aid display will also compare the real time risk against what is expected of the tool via a simple but powerful traffic light visual aid. The visual aid will identify when the sensed level from the HAVwear is materially different to the tool  tag value. 
 
 
Note the reading is updated approximately once a second and is not a rolling average over the time since activation. This contrasts with instruments designed to measure vibration dose which average the dose from the start of the test and do not allow for real time analysis of technique.
 
It should be recognised that the HAVwear real use data supplied to the RASOR is based on the HAVwear’s sensed vibration reading. HAVwear’s sensed vibration uses detected signals from a triaxial accelerometer in the device which are adjusted for transmissibility through the hand to give an approximation of the vibration magnitude incident at the hand. The reading as such does not meet the measurement requirements of ISO8041. However, the methodology is extremely consistent and will readily be able to determine relative risk levels for different uses of a tool or differences between tool types.
 
 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Testimonial:

BAM Nuttall - Roy Jackson, Senior Safety Advisor

“BAM Nuttall has always tried to stay on top of the issue of HAVS and ensure the safety of our workforce. In the past, we were trying to accurately estimate the amount of vibration that staff were exposed to ourselves, but this was a lengthy and time-consuming process and we knew that we needed a better system. “When we first introduced HAVmeters two years ago, we saw them as the best option to use to stay ahead of the game on vibration safety. The devices give us a valuable monitoring system that makes sure we know who is working with what machinery and for how long - and provides us with accurate, detailed records of what our teams are exposed to. “We now use HAVmeters in every project where our staff operate vibrating equipment and it is easily the best system on the market for monitoring HAV exposure. By using this equipment, we ensure that we not only keep our workforce safe from injury but also have a robust defence in place to protect ourselves from liability when it comes to vibration issues.”
