Robust defence against litigation

HSE compliance offers limited defence due to the lack of conclusive exposure records. Following a claim a claimants working history is reviewed to assess under whose employment they were most exposed to vibration and to request the highest payment from that employer. All other employers are targeted to make payments.

 

Being HSE compliant does not mean you have individual exposure records and becomes “your word against there's” with little proof that the employer kept the claimant below thresholds. The Reactec Analytics Platform provides more conclusive and auditable records to provide a more robust defence.

An employer and their insurance company will rightly be concerned about liability should a worker develop ill-health. A company can prove a reduced risk with evidence of minimising risks and preventing ill-health by means of risk assessment and practical actionsto reduce exposure.

Also the costs of collating the exposure paperwork takes time and can incur a large cost as part of the process.

The Reactec Analytics Platform addresses these issues by providing a more robust defense by providing trigger accurate tool usage and exposure levels for all tool operator activity. As an auditable, tamper proof and accurate system all historical exposure data can be viewed and downloaded at the click of a button.

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.”
