Tool Vibration Testing

Back to Products/Services >

Reactec Ltd provide a tool vibration testing service.

All measurements will be taken using a Larson Davies HVM100 Human Vibration Analyser with a triaxial accelerometer. Measurements will be undertaken in general accordance with BS EN ISO 5349:2001 Part s 1 & 2.

All testing will be carried out with the tool operating in similar scenarios in day to day use, this will allow for readings obtained to reflect typical in use vibration values. The following standards will be used as a basis of the measurement protocol: BS EN ISO 5349 Mechanical Vibration – ‘Measurement and evaluation of human exposure to hand transmitted vibration Part 1: General Requirements and BS EN ISO 5349 Part 2: ‘Practical guidance for measurement at the workplace.

Measurements will be made on each tool for a period of 1 min, on each handle or where the tools will have been held where applicable. Tests will be carried out on different materials and the tool operating on different settings if and when appropriate.

  • Reactec engineer has capacity to perform testing of a maximum of 20 tools per day under optimum conditions.
  • Reactec will produce a Vibration Analysis Report within 14 days of the testing day.

Testimonial:

BAM Nuttall - Roy Jackson, Senior Safety Advisor

“BAM Nuttall has always tried to stay on top of the issue of HAVS and ensure the safety of our workforce. In the past, we were trying to accurately estimate the amount of vibration that staff were exposed to ourselves, but this was a lengthy and time-consuming process and we knew that we needed a better system. “When we first introduced HAVmeters two years ago, we saw them as the best option to use to stay ahead of the game on vibration safety. The devices give us a valuable monitoring system that makes sure we know who is working with what machinery and for how long - and provides us with accurate, detailed records of what our teams are exposed to. “We now use HAVmeters in every project where our staff operate vibrating equipment and it is easily the best system on the market for monitoring HAV exposure. By using this equipment, we ensure that we not only keep our workforce safe from injury but also have a robust defence in place to protect ourselves from liability when it comes to vibration issues.”
