Frequently Asked Questions

Regular use of power tools for prolonged periods of time can lead to permanent injury of nerves and damage to the blood vessels which causes Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome.

The average UK fine for companies breaching HAVS standards is £250,000 and the average employee compensation is £18,500.

If your workforce regularly uses power tools and other vibration emitting equipment, HAV-Sentry is certainly right for your company.

You can explore HAV-Sentry during a product trial that will answer all of your questions. If you would like to try it out, get in touch with us and let’s schedule a demo.

Yes. The number of system components items required can be configured based on the number of workers and processes.

We can assess your company’s needs and make a bespoke recommendation during our initial conversation.

The quantity is influenced by factors such as:

  • Number of operators
  • Tools and machines used
  • Daily levels of exposure
  • Existing control measures

Yes, the Aegis sensing units can be shared between multiple team members with their unique ID Tags.

The battery on the Aegis unit covers up to 12 hours of continuous monitoring, enough for the average working shift.

Data on user’s normal working pattern (walking, standing, waving, normal hand movements) is being recorded at all times after ID Tag pairing.

However, the accumulation of vibration exposure starts only when acceleration has passed 6Hz and stops when it’s below 6Hz, thus preventing the user from generating false-positive vibration data through hand and body movements.

The HAV-Sentry sensing unit uses MEMS technology. Unlike piezoelectric sensors which must be calibrated yearly, MEMS sensors are factory calibrated and require no further calibration. This means no disruption to your workforce.

For peace of mind, device health checks, the update of zero-level thresholds, and the verification of the data acquisition chain are automatically performed upon connection to the Docking Station.
