Shawcity is delighted to announce their latest partnership with yet another leading manufacturer. Effective from May 2018, Shawcity will be working alongside HAVi, the UK’s leading specialist in products and services for controlling and managing Hand Arm Vibration.
HAVi is a very welcome expansion to the vibration section of the Shawcity portfolio for health and safety, occupational hygiene and environmental monitoring instruments.
The HAVi range of vibration monitors helps employers to quickly identify which tools, operators and processes are most likely to cause issues. This allows employers to create risk assessments and take the appropriate corrective action to comply with the Control of Vibration at Work Regulations 2005.
Options available include HAVi meters which attach to individual tools with a Velcro strap, the new HAVi watch which synchronises with each meter set up on every tool the operator is going to use, easy to use induction watch charger and the clever HAVi watch-charging dock.
The HAVi watch acts as a messaging system offering a broad spectrum of information to the user and a fully automated exposure data recording device. Every time the employee changes tools, they simply synchronise the watch with the meter on the new tool and the two devices record vibration exposure specific to that tool. The HAVi watch also offers flashing and vibration warning signals if set personal exposure limits are exceeded.
At the end of the shift or any other given point, the data collected by the watch can be transferred to any mobile device. This can be followed up by easy-to-produce reports and analysis, available via automated email, hard copies or simply viewing online. Exposure data for individual tools or employees or even general trends within the project can be generated in clear detail.
Neil O’Regan, Shawcity’s Managing Director, commented: ‘This is a very exciting partnership for us. The HAVi system sits perfectly within our existing range of vibration instruments and offers the best early indicator that certain tools may be causing an issue which needs further investigation and action.
‘The HAVi system is also very comprehensive in terms of support materials for employers and their employees, with log books, safety cards and posters to help engage and educate the workforce.
‘The relationship with HAVi works especially well for our customers as we can also combine the HAVi technology with our existing range of Svantek vibration measurement monitors (triaxial accelerometers) to offer the next level of data analysis in terms of vibration exposure.’
