Why HAVRISK Kit?

 

Assessing tool usage across a variety of applications while obtaining a representative tool vibration magnitude can be challenging!   The HSE also state a manual risk assessment will have a high level of uncertainty and employees are also unlikely to be able to provide this information reliably!    Without a truly representative knowledge of operator daily exposure, the likelihood of effectively applying controls to keep HAVs exposure below required levels is extremely low!
         
   
 

HAVwear’s unique ability to monitor real-time vibration risk can highlight exposure which could otherwise remain undetected. With a simple to follow guide to carry out an initial risk assessment of Hand Arm Vibration, HAVRISK Kit has been specifically designed for organisations looking for a fast, easy to follow and effective risk assessment of HAV exposure. 

 

The HAVRISK Kit is ideal to support both an existing risk management policy (to gain greater insight into exposure risk by reducing the guess work of tool usage and related exposure) and for an initial risk assessment.

HAVwear is more than just a tool timer
Second sight data to identify hidden exposure risk
The HAVWEAR is a wearable wrist device which tracks & calculates in real-time an individual’s HAV exposure. Daily exposure risk is calculated using a tools pre-defined vibration magnitude and length of time the tool is in use to calculate exposure points in accordance with The Control of Vibration at Work regulations 2005 and with HSE guidance. 
 
The HAVwear is unique as it allows you to check your assessment against secondary risk data by determining the real-time vibration exposure experienced by the wearer. With this additional insight, more effective controls can be developed to reduce HAV exposure risk, by highlighting issues previously undetected by generic risk assessments.

How the HAVRISK Kit works?

 

   
         
Use the guide and forms included to document the process of a risk assessment   Deploy the HAVwear system to monitor exposure by attaching smart labels to tools, assign HAVwear devices to tool operators and receive by email exposure data reports   Enter the exposure data into your risk assessment documentation to compare with initial assessment estimates to support the development of a measure of controls.

 

 

 

 

FAQ

 

How do I purchase the HAVRISK Kit?

The HAVRISK Kit is available to purchase online by credit or purchase order (a customer agreement form is required to be completed before a purchase can be made with a purchase order).


 

What training is provided?

The HAVRISK Kit is designed as a simple and practical system of use. The user guide explains how to use the forms as part of a risk assessment and a user poster explains on how to use the monitoring system. 


 

How may tools can be tracked?

The HAVRISK Kit has a default 10 smart tags included which you can select during the online purchase process. Additional tags can be purchased. Note: Once attached to tools, Tags cannot be removed and reapplied. 


 

How many operators can use the HAVwear devices?

There is no limit to how many operators can use a HAVwear device consecutively. A HAVwear device requires an ID card (included in the HAVRISK Kit) to sign out and allocate a HAVwear device to a single employee for a risk assessment.   


 

Who receives the exposure data reports?

Up to 3 recipients can automatically receive the exposure data reports. During the online purchase process you will be requested to enter up to 3 email recipients. 


 

What are the exposure data reports?

There are two types of reports that are produced daily. 

  1. An "Operator daily exposure" report contains each tool operators total exposure points from the previous day. 
  2. A "Spot check" report lists in time order the duration and exposure from each tool used and by which operator ID.

 

What after sales support do you provide?

Reactec are available during office hours and provide email support.


 

What forms are included in the KAVRISK Kit 

As well as an easy to follow risk assessment guide a ready reckoner to compare expected and monitored risk data is included as well as forms to complete a risk assessment.


 

What's the difference between the HAVRISK Kit and the Reactec Analytics Platform

The main difference is the HAVRISK Kit is designed to support a risk assessment which involves sample monitoring of HAV exposure risk. The Reactec Analytics Platform can help companies gain a wider understanding of their organisations HAV exposure and how to better address the risk as stated below.

Expand risk assessments across a workforce
Support larger deployments of HAVwear devices. 

Greater support of “Plan, Do, Check, Act” process
Facilitate more timely monitoring of exposure to measure effectiveness of controls for continuous reduction of worker HAVS exposure risk.

Personalised employee risk management
Personalised ID cards to gain insights into individual employee risk.

Support all levels of the hierarchy of controls
A wider range of reports to identify the source of exposure to mitigate and reduce residual risk.

 

Involve more stakeholders in risk mitigation
Unlimited users and 24/7 access to online and email reports.

Real-time supervisor intervention
HAV risk mobile App to address issues in the field.

Intervention logging and control measures management
Track and measure effectiveness of controls & log interventions.

Predictive & preventative tool maintenance & management
Trigger & duration timed tool tracking & reporting.

More robust defence against litigation
Continuous monitoring provides more conclusive exposure records, instantly accessed & auditable.

   

 

Can I upgrade from the HAVRISK Kit to the Reactec Analytics Platform?

HAVRISK Kit users can be readily upgraded to take full advantage of the benefits and features of the Reactec Analytics Platform (additional fees apply).

Testimonial:

Everton Football Club - Richard Cairns, Health & Safety Manager

“Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome is not just a problem for people using industrial power tools in the construction or manufacturing sectors – it can affect anyone who regularly uses other vibrating equipment including mowers and strimmers. We have dozens of lawnmowers that are in daily use at Goodison Park and our training complex at Finch Farm, so we have to have a monitoring system that is simple and effective. “In the past we relied on timesheets and individual record-keeping to monitor vibration exposure, but the HAVmeter system is a far superior method of doing this. All of the information is collated by the devices and provides us with a comprehensive overview of how much exposure each member of staff is subjected to. If they reach the safe limit stipulated by the HSE, then they are alerted to the danger at once – meaning there is no chance of over-exposure. “However, it is not just a good tool for preventing injuries. The system allows us to generate reports about the vibration levels of our equipment, so we can identify which machines need to be replaced or upgraded. It’s a very versatile piece of kit that will continue to be hugely beneficial to our groundskeeping operations in the future.”
