Robust defence against litigation

More robust defence against litigation

HSE compliance offers limited defence due to the lack of conclusive exposure records. Following a claim a claimants working history is reviewed to assess under whose employment they were most exposed to vibration and to request the highest payment from that employer. All other employers are targeted to make payments.

 

Being HSE compliant does not mean you have individual exposure records and becomes “your word against there's” with little proof that the employer kept the claimant below thresholds. The Reactec Analytics Platform provides more conclusive and auditable records to provide a more robust defence.

An employer and their insurance company will rightly be concerned about liability should a worker develop ill-health. A company can prove a reduced risk with evidence of minimising risks and preventing ill-health by means of risk assessment and practical actionsto reduce exposure.

Also the costs of collating the exposure paperwork takes time and can incur a large cost as part of the process.

The Reactec Analytics Platform addresses these issues by providing a more robust defense by providing trigger accurate tool usage and exposure levels for all tool operator activity. As an auditable, tamper proof and accurate system all historical exposure data can be viewed and downloaded at the click of a button.

In addition proving a more robust defence and an effective HAV management policy to reduce risk provides a stronger position to negotiate the lowest insurance premiums.

GAP Group - Malcolm Campbell, Health & Safety Manager

“We’ve been working with the HAVmeter system for the past few years as part of our ongoing commitment to reducing hand arm vibration injuries. It is an impressive tool that provides the best way to monitor vibration levels and ensure HSE levels are not exceeded – which is why are now able to program and install the HAVmeter tags on tools in all of our UK depots.”
