Reatec the company behind the HAVmeter solution, which records vibration exposure levels and trigger times from vibrating power tools, has launched the SMARTcharger.
The HAVmeter solution records vibration exposure levels and trigger times from vibrating power tools. The solution helps provide an in-depth and accurate overview of every employee’s vibration exposure so individual levels stipulated by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) are not exceeded.
The new mobile health and safety device, the SMARTcharger allows workers to work remotely for weeks at a time, before having to return the HAVmeter to a base station. This increases the safety of operatives by acting as a satilitte for downloading and charging.
Jim O’Hagan, Managing Director of Reactec, hopes that the new SMARTcharger will enable firms across the UK to better manage the welfare of mobile and remote operators.
He said: “HAVmeters are already seen as the industry best practise for monitoring and managing employee exposure to vibration levels which can lead to Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) among workers across a variety of sectors.
“We are continuously working to make it as easier for operatives working both on site and mobile to better manage their welfare in terms of vibration health and safety.
“The development of the SMARTcharger has given us a better understanding of remote working practices and it’s important to realise that there are different types of workers out there with different needs.
“We see the product as a real extension to better manage Hand Arm Vibration exposure.”
