What is Hand Arm Vibration (HAVS)?
There is no cure for HAVS, only prevention
2 million UK workers exposed to high levels*
300,000 suffering advanced stages*
You can develop HAVS within 6 months.
50% of all reported Occupational industrial diseases are HAVS related (HSE 2012)

How it works
Fully automated tracking & reporting
- Tool operators attach the HAVWEAR to their wrist or place the HAVMETER onto each tool during use to calculate vibration exposure points.
- At the end of a shift placing a HAVWEAR or HAVMETER onto a Docking/Basestation will transmit their data to the online Reactec reports website.
- Employees with access can view allocated reports from a team, project to companywide reports 24/7.
