Hayley Group appoints Curotec as official partner for hand-arm vibration monitoring solutions
Tuesday 23rd April 2019
Hayley Group is the UK's largest independent supplier of engineering inventory, and their decision to partner with the Berkshire-based vibration specialist was driven by the unique capabilities of Curotec's Q2 vibration management system.
Q2 is the only HSE-compliant personal vibration monitor that measures vibration emissions on the tool, in real time. So unlike other vibration monitors which rely on assumed magnitude, Q2 takes the guesswork out of risk assessments by measuring actual vibration emissions and calculating HSE Exposure Points in real time.
Hayley Group joins a growing list of major brands who have come to recognise the value of measuring vibration exposure rather than estimating it, and their decision to actively promote Q2 is great news for workers across the UK.
It's also great news for employers, because Q2's cloud-based reporting provides complete visibility of vibration risk - which not only promotes strict legal compliance, but provides the evidence to prove it.
Mike Jones, Curotec's founder, said: "Hand-arm vibration syndrome is an archaic industrial disease which has no place in the 21st century. For too long, employers have been forced to implement risk assessments based on flawed estimates of vibration magnitude. But the technology now exists to accurately measure exposure in real time, and to warn operators before they breach pre-defined values."
