Worried about HAVS within your workforce?

Our unique solution empowers your operators to take control of their own exposure as well as complying with HSE requirements for HAV assessment reports. 

Did you know that if your staff are using hand tools such as chainsaws, drills, or sanders, they’re at high risk of suffering with Hand-Arm Vibration?

As an employer, it’s your responsibility to make sure that risks from vibration are controlled and then provide suitable precautions. 


Safe Hands or HAVS?

Help prevent the early signs of Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome for your operators and ensure your business stays HSE compliant with the Control of Vibration at Work Regulations 2005.

Our HAV service:

  • IOSH accredited expert HAV assessors perform site visits to assess tools.
  • Tools are categorised depending on their vibration results.
  • We use a simple red, amber and green tagging system, so workers will easily know the vibration status of each tool and the recommended usage time.
  • Provides detailed reports supplying recommended daily use for all assessed tools.
  • Ensures HSE compliance in our clients’ sites.

How can CoMech help?

In short, we test and analyse the tools your employees are using to protect them from over exposure to vibrations.

Our HAV Experts use an accelerometer, which basically reads the vibration output in three different directions. Using the different outputs as well as the official HSE vibration calculation process, it calculates a safe level of use for the tool.

Once we’ve done that, we give you, our customer, an in depth HAV report. This isn’t just a pass or fail, it’s a clear recommended daily usage. We mark this on the tool itself, along with a colour coded label and readings. 

We make monitoring and preventing over exposure to vibrating tools a breeze. Our team work with you and your operatives to make everything a smooth, easy process.
