Plant hire firm reaps the benefits of HAVs management system

 A major plant hire company has confirmed the importance of vibration health and safety by adding a preventative solution to its fleet of products.

A-Plant, one of the UK’s largest plant, tool and equipment hire companies has shown is improving workforce welfare by establishing a key relationship with innovative health and safety specialists Reactec – the firm responsible for the HAVmeter.

Ashtead Plant Hire Company Ltd Marketing Director, Asif Latief, said:

“At A-Plant, we hold the safety of the UK workforce as of paramount importance and recognise that the HAVmeter is the front runner in reducing and eliminating Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome.

“After extensive investigations into the HAVS monitoring market, we are confident that the HAVmeter provides the greatest cost, operational and health benefits to both employer and employee.”

Director of Reactec, Jim O’Hagan, commented:

“We look forward to helping A-Plant streamline the vibration health and safety practices that accompany the equipment they have for hire, allowing both them and those who use the tools they provide, to enjoy the energy and cost saving benefits of HAVmeter.”

HAVmeter is the UK’s leading system for monitoring vibration exposure and, in addition to being offered by major tool hire firms, it is used by many of the country’s biggest construction and manufacturing companies including Balfour Beatty, Environment Agency, Tarmac and Aston Martin.
