Testimonial:

Lead Advisor for Amey and Hand Arm Vibration Guru - Colin Hogg MICE CMIOSH

“The HAVmeter system has been in use on several of our contracts throughout the UK for over 16 months and has made the capture of exposure data very easy and accurate, facilitating appropriate management of Hand Arm Vibration. The most significant improvement has been in the efficiency and ease with which we now report and monitor exposure to Hand Arm Vibration throughout the whole business. Accurate exposure reports can be generated in seconds giving us as much detail as we require both at contract and board level.”
