HSE FAQ confirms HAVwear is a suitable tool for assessing your Hand-Arm Vibration exposure risk


The HSE FAQ has confirmed Reactec’s HAVwear can be used to comply with regulations for assessing HAV Exposure when used as a tool timer:
  • Validate risk assessments
  • Ensure controls are being followed
PLUS because HAVwear also monitors exposure based on the vibration experienced by the wearer (a second assessment method), it can further validate risk assessments by highlighting unexpected exposure risk from:
  • Tool operator competency
  • Tool and accessory condition
  • Tool application and performance
The HSE recognise that a level of monitoring with a device such as HAVwear can assist employers in complying with The Control of Vibration at Work Regulations 2005. HAVwear can play a key role in the PLAN, DO, CHECK, ACT management method used for the control and continuous improvement of risk.
