Trade Press Get Wind of New Product
An Innovative vibration safety company has launched a poker attachment which will allow its vibration measurement device to be used to protect the health and safety of air poker operators against Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS).
Reactec which is responsible for the HAVmeter has designed the air poker attachment after realising that there was no accurate and effective way of monitoring vibration exposure of operators of air pokers- used to settle concrete through trapped air and water.
Paper based systems which are normally used have been proved to be time consuming costly and inaccurate according to the firm.
Dyer and Butler is just one company which has experience major benefits from the new air poker attachement for the HAVmeter.
Geoff Fox, SHE advisor for the firm said: “We are always striving to improve worker welfare and we wanted to improve the level and quality of HAV monitoring of this commonly used piece of equipment.
“Working with Reactec, who already provide a widely recognised industry best practise solution to HAV management, has designed the new poker attachment which has gone further in improving our operator welfare as well as workforce efficiency and our tool maintenance programs.”
