Safety catalogue listing for HAVmeter
UK vibration expert Reactec has received a major industry endorsement for its award-winning HAVmeter system after being listed for the first time in the country’s leading safety catalogue.
The innovative HAVmeter system, which records and monitors employee exposure to vibration levels in the workplace, has been featured in the influential Arco catalogue – the industry bible for sourcing the best safety products and equipment.
Arco is the UK’s leading supplier of safety equipment and work wear and their catalogue showcases the very best technical safety products on the market today. By achieving the catalogue listing, HAVmeter technology will now be available to an even wider range of companies across all industries and sectors in the UK, providing them with the best solution for the effective hand arm vibration management for their workforces.
Jim O’Hagan, managing director of Reactec, said: “Effective vibration management is vitally important for any company whose workers regularly use vibrating equipment and power tools. It provides greater protection from conditions such as Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome and ensures that employees do not exceed the limits that have been set by the Health & Safety Executive.
Vibration safety expertise
“The HAVmeter system is quickly becoming the industry standard for vibration management in the workplace and is used by many leading companies in a wide range of industries, including construction, manufacturing and ground maintenance. It’s an easy-to-use system that brings clear benefits to employers and staff who use it.
“We’re therefore delighted that our technology has been listed in the Arco catalogue. Receiving this listing is not only a clear recognition of all the hard work we have put into developing the HAVmeter system, but will also allow us to promote the devices to an even wider UK audience and make them more accessible for clients to purchase.”
Reactec’s HAVmeters are currently used by major UK companies including Tarmac, Balfour Beatty, Everton FC and Aston Martin. The growing popularity of the technology as the best method of maintaining vibration safety in the workplace has also helped Reactec achieve a place on the 2011 Deloitte Fast 50 list – an annual report that showcases the 50 fastest growing technology companies in the UK.
