HAVSense -
a unique dosimetry system from HAVSco

A unique, patented, high-tech system designed by HAVSCo Ltd to measure, record and analyse personal Hand Arm Vibration dosage, as it occurs, every second of the working period.

Traditional HAVS dosimetry approaches

Traditional methods of assessing the risk of HAVS involve timers or sampling the vibration produced by the tool, and then using theoretical values to calculate broad-spectrum estimates of operator exposure.

The unique HAVSense dosimetry approach

In contrast HAVSense technology directly measures the individual's HAV dosage throughout the work period.

The system can analyse multiple workers and will indicate when each operator approaches or exceeds the HSE’s recommended daily exposure.

The HAVSense three-axis dosimeter provides an ideal method for monitoring Hand Arm Vibration. It conforms to the dosage calculation requirements of the Physical Agents Directive, of ISO 5349, of ISO 8041 – 2005 and the EU Directive 2002/44/EC.

Vibration White Finger

The risk of personal injury from exposure to excessive levels of vibration is well documented. High levels of Hand Arm Vibration from powered hand tools are known to cause Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS), otherwise known as Vibration White Finger (VWF) or Raynaud’s disease of occupational origin. Left unchecked and untreated, the consequences can be serious – with potential liability for compensation. Under EU and UK law, employers must monitor and record the vibration exposure of all employees at risk.
