As well as looking on how to keep our operatives and staff accident or incident free we also take a proactive stance on occupational health occurrences, as the scourge of Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome became more apparent our one of our first steps was to think of how we as a Company can keep our people from coming into contact with machinery which gives off an element of vibration. After some research we came across the Larson Davis HVM100 Tri-axial Vibration Monitor this amazing piece of equipment allows us to keep a check on all new and old plant items on the limitations on each and how long they may be used for. This is just one of a number of things we undertake in our operations here, other health occupational surveillance include FULL medicals, operatives with radiation passes regularly screened.
