Amey

“The most significant improvement has been in the efficiency and ease with which we now report and monitor exposure”.

 

Date: October 2008

Site: Local Government and Highways Agency Contracts

Action:

Amey ran a prototype system for over a month alongside a reasonably organised paper-based system which prompted them to roll out.

Result:

Increased productivity as Amey found that operatives had been overestimating trigger time by up to 10 times with the paper based system. The HAVmeter® is now being used on over 9 major contracts across the UK and Northern Ireland.

Testimonial:

Historic Scotland - Andrew Nisbet, Works Manager

“We have introduced the HAVmeters at our sites along the Antonine Wall before rolling it out at our other properties. These sites require constant grounds maintenance and the meters allow us to ensure that staff are not being exposed to excessive levels of vibration. We regularly assess our staff exposure but the meters allow us an extra degree of safety by alerting our teams when the overuse of equipment could be harmful. We have just started using the meters as our summer season starts and will be monitoring the results that they produce. We have found them easy to put in place. They will now be rolled out to teams across other properties, including some of the most famous historic landmarks in the country.”
