ReadMax-HAV Tracker is a web based system which allows centralised
access to Hand Arm Vibration exposure details and history of personnel and tools
by using intelligent tags with unique ID’s. During issue and receipt, employee and
tool tags are recorded using a handheld reader. This process can happen at both
store points and work yards as intrinsically safe handheld readers are used. Each
time a tool is used or returned logs are updated. The handheld reader is docked
on a PC and the data transferred to the central database. Reports based on tool
type and duration as per health and safety guidelines help track exposure, and alerts
can be set at various levels limiting exposure to within permissible values or range.
ReadMax-HAV is a web based risk reduction and asset optimisation
system developed utilising the latest recoding technologies. Provides secure, anytime-anywhere
access, alerts based on exposure action value and work planning. Analyse historic
data to assess exposure of each employee over a user defined period of time. Hand
arm vibration monitoring tool directly utilises the real time work environment data
and links long term planning for employee safety.
Hand-Arm Vibration (HAV) key aim is to reduce work-related ill-health
and also provide the information of Hand-Arm Vibration Programme. It observes the
work processes and tool used by the personnel. It provides work constraint of each
instrument. Plan for weekly tool allocation and vibration exposure and history of
The industry currently manually maintains the documentation required
to monitor personnel and working time of instruments. Hand Arm vibration is currently
tracked using the Hand Arm Vibration Exposure calculation using MS Excel. The 'ready
reck-nor' gives the daily vibration exposures.
Hand arm vibration monitoring equipment provides real time and
on site alerts to employees who are nearing the EAV on a daily basis, the ELV on
a weekly work plan basis and company defined exposure limit, which is less than
the statutory limits.
A Web based system using a cost effective annual licensing model
removes the need to entering into any AMC for the system. This system provides centralised
access to Hand Arm Vibration exposure details of personnel, utilising employee power
effectively. Uses tie wrap tags proven to work in harsh environments on all tools,
irrespective of casing type. Uses ATEX certified handheld readers.
