The Castle Group Legislation Starter System for Noise and Vibration gives you all you need to monitor the noise and vibration exposure in the workplace.
Designed by Castle Group Ltd, one of the world's leading organisations in the monitoring of Vibration in the workplace, this Hand Arm Vibration Meter was designed around The Control of Vibration at Work Regulations 2005 .
It was created to provide Health and Safety Managers with everything they will need when assessing vibration levels of handheld power tools in the workplace.
Start reducing the risk of HAVS Issues and Claims within your organisation today with this Hand Arm Vibration Meter, the Castle Vexo H, the UK's Best Selling Hand Arm Vibration Meter.
It's very important to consider that to defend personal injury claims in a court of law, only measure readings are considered to be evidence in your defence.
This best selling Hand Arm Vibration Meter, the Castle Vexo H, enables you to easily measure the vibration levels of the handheld power tools that your employees use, ensuring that your employees aren't over exposed to vibration levels over and above the Action and Limit Values stated in The Control of Vibration at Work Regulations 2005.
Once a measurement has been taken, this Hand Arm Vibration Meter, the Castle Vexo, will display an extremely accurate vibration magnitude level.
This vibration level can be calculated with the exposure time (actual exposure times can be found with a tool timer) into HSE Exposure Points - the HSE's guideline method of monitoring vibration exposure in the workplace. More information can be found on HSE Exposure Points - click here.
This Hand Arm Vibration Meter was designed to be nothing but easy to use, giving you the ability to measure large numbers of different hand held power tools in a day, whilst ensuring highly accurate results. Recorded Data is logged in the internal memory of the instrument, ready to be downloaded to the included free software, VibDATA Vibration Analysis Software. Data can also be viewed on screen for immediate use.
Built and supplied with long life rechargeable batteries, an additional pack can be purchased to ensure this Hand Arm Vibration Meter can be ready to use whenever you need it. Designed with a rugged and impact resistant body, you can be confident that your new investment will stand the test of time.
This Vexo H Hand Arm Vibration Meter and all it's accessories is supplied in an Attache Carry Case.
Start effectively measuring vibration exposure with the Castle Vexo H Hand Arm Vibration Meter to ensure HAVS doesn't become a problem with in workforce.
