List of HSE controls the Reactec Analytics reports support
 

1. Measure effectiveness of controls

Accurate and targeted monitoring is helpful to efficiently deploy and validate the effectiveness of controls to effect on-going reduction of risk. Check regularly that the programme of controls you have introduced is being carried out by your managers and employees.

Example: Use the reports to see if the levels of exposure from tools or HSE thresholds breaches are reducing over time.

2. Work schedules

View the time employees are exposed to vibration and the related HSE exposure points and thresholds. Understand tool use by operators to help plan work to avoid individuals being exposed to vibration for long, continuous periods.

Where tools require continual or frequent use, introduce employee rotas to limit exposure times (you should avoid employees being exposed for periods which are long enough to put them in the high risk group.

Example: Organise employees to work in teams where they switch tasks within the team to avoid individuals having unnecessarily high exposure to vibration.

3. Alternative work methods

From measuring exposure risk as part of an assessment use the reports to more accurately identify areas of risk and where to look for alternative work methods which eliminate or reduce exposure to vibration. Your trade association, other industry contacts, equipment suppliers and trade journals may help you identify good practice in your industry. Mechanise or automate the work.

Example: Use a breaker attachment on an excavating machine to break concrete rather than using a hand-held breaker. See http://www.hse.gov.uk/vibration/ for further examples.

4. Equipment selection

These reports help select or allocate equipment for tasks that can do the work efficiently. Details of tools used and by which operators during a selected time period. View and compare tool vibration magnitudes of tools used to help select the lowest vibration tools that are suitable and can do the work efficiently.

Equipment that is unsuitable, too small or not powerful enough is likely to take much longer to complete the task and expose employees to vibration for longer than is necessary. Limit the use of high-vibration tools wherever possible.

Example: To cut large holes in brickwork, use a diamond-tipped hole-cutting drill bit with a rotary action rather than a tungsten-tipped hole bit which requires rotary and hammer action.

5. Maintenance & purchasing policy for replacing old plant

View which make and model of tools contribute the most in terms of vibration exposure points and how long tools have been used. This can help maintenance scheduling, plan replacements and identify poor tool use. Work equipment is likely to be replaced over time as it becomes worn out, and it is important to choose replacements, so far as is reasonably practicable, which are suitable for the work, efficient and of lower vibration.

Examples: If a breaker has vibration-isolating handles, check how the machine must be operated to ensure the reduced vibration levels are achieved in use and ensure your operators have the necessary training. .

Check and sharpen chainsaw teeth regularly (following the manufacturer’s recommendations) to maintain the chainsaw's efficiency and to reduce the time it takes to complete the work.

Testimonial:

Sir Robert McAlpine

“Overall we have already seen a dramatic drop in exposure since we deployed the Reactec Analytics Platform. It made tangible an invisible risk and helped us immediately refine and better design our measure of controls”.
