Football Safety Drive Scores New Coverage for HAVmeter
Monday, October 17th, 2011
Reactec’s innovative HAVmeter safety monitors have been in the news again following a deal to provide the technology to a leading Premiership football club.
The devices, which accurately measure exposure to vibration in the workplace in order to reduce the risk of injuries, were highlighted in the influential Football Stadium Management magazine following the deployment of the technology at Everton FC.
The Premiership team has invested in the HAVmeter system in order to minimise the risk of ground staff contracting Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) from prolonged usage of vibrating equipment such as lawnmovers and strimmers. The disease is one of the biggest dangers facing anyone who uses vibrating tools during their work, and can leave sufferers crippled for life due to deterioration of the blood vessels in their hands and arms.
The full coverage can be viewed in the latest issue of Football Stadium Management and was the result of a prolonged public relations campaign for Reacetc which is carried out by Holyrood Partnership PR in Scotland.
