Can Reactec retain the Construction News award for 2 years running?

Finger crossed again as Reactec are shortlisted for the Construction News Awards for a second year running.


Shortlisted for the Technology supplier of the year, Reactec recently presented to the Construction News awards panel of judges on how the Reactec Analytics Platform has gained further momentum in developing systems and features to empower industry to more effectively mitigate HAV exposure risk.


During 2017 Reactec system has redefined what is “reasonably practicable” to help lower risks by introducing;

·        A new HAV risk mobile App, to monitor team’s HAV exposure and identify & address risk in real-time.

·        Control measure software for users to log intervention notes as well as add and track HAV control measures against targets.

Reactec has also invested considerable time and resource into further researching Reactec’s unique assessment of the transmitted vibration (sensed by the wearer) as a viable source of HAV exposure data. This has included in-the-field research of risk assessment accuracy, comparison testing to ISO standard measuring devices and pioneering clinical research into the human impact of exposure to vibration.

“Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome is not just a problem for people using industrial power tools in the construction or manufacturing sectors – it can affect anyone who regularly uses other vibrating equipment including mowers and strimmers. We have dozens of lawnmowers that are in daily use at Goodison Park and our training complex at Finch Farm, so we have to have a monitoring system that is simple and effective. “In the past we relied on timesheets and individual record-keeping to monitor vibration exposure, but the HAVmeter system is a far superior method of doing this. All of the information is collated by the devices and provides us with a comprehensive overview of how much exposure each member of staff is subjected to. If they reach the safe limit stipulated by the HSE, then they are alerted to the danger at once – meaning there is no chance of over-exposure. “However, it is not just a good tool for preventing injuries. The system allows us to generate reports about the vibration levels of our equipment, so we can identify which machines need to be replaced or upgraded. It’s a very versatile piece of kit that will continue to be hugely beneficial to our groundskeeping operations in the future.”
