Tarmac - Paul Fleetham, National Contracting Director

“Paper based systems never really worked, the HAVmeter replaced that system with the latest technology which allows us to accurately measure and monitor our employees’ exposure to HAVS.” “After rolling it out we are seeing a positive result from the workforce who like the system and think it is easy to use. It’s great for self monitoring and the tool tags can also be used as a tracking device.” “It’s very difficult to quantify what sort of amount of exposure an individual has had - the HAVmeter is the perfect solution”
