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:

Norfolk County Council Environment Transport & Development - Colin Tibbenham

“We needed a better monitoring system in place to make sure we knew who was working with what machinery and for how long. After reviewing a number of potential solutions, we decided on the HAVmeter because it was the only option that ticked all the boxes for us In terms of accountability as it could give us detailed records of what our teams were exposed to. We purchased one HAVmeter for every worker in our Environmental & Waste and Highways divisions – a total of 250 - which means we now look after everyone who works with us at any given time, including our partners and sub-contractors. If they work with us, then they have to comply with our safety rules. Through our investment in preventing HAVS we have been able to reinforce the message to our workforce that Norfolk County Council takes health and safety very seriously and that we care about and value our workers. Also, the devices mean we now have a robust defence in place to protect us against any claims.”
