Health & Safety
Many industries rely on work that involves exposure to whole-body vibration, such as farming, construction and quarrying, but it can occur elsewhere, for example on the road in lorries and trucks, at sea in small fast boats and in the air in some helicopters. With tighter controls now being introduced to ensure the long term health of the employees, it is vital that you monitor and understand your workers exposure to shock and vibration.
The latest EU legislation has set low limits on the acceptable dose and in order to maintain running your current operations you will need to prove that you're attempting to reduce your crews exposure. Alternative solutions require increasing your workforce to spread the exposure over more people or investing heavily in new boats and equipment.
With the Dyena Acceleration Recorder you can quickly and easily build up a database of the vibration dose the workers receive during different tasks, and over a period of time and use this to alter their daily routine to ensure that their exposure is reduced.
Implementing small changes can make a significant impact on their long term health and maintaining this simple record will allow you to prove to the authorities that you are following the guidelines of the legislation.
Whilst workers are naturally opposed to data recording of their performance, there is a lot of synergy to the 1980's when tachographs were fitted to truck. Within a short space of time they will become a standard fitment and accepted by all the crew.
