Introducing the Revo™ Vibration Meter
The Revo has been designed specifically to allow you to measure hand-arm vibration and whole body vibration exposure. This small, compact vibration meter can measure and analyse vibration data. You can then download the data to assess it further and create the reports you need.
The Revo meets all the requirements for human vibration meters in compliance with ISO 8041, enabling you to get compliant with vibration monitoring.
Together with our handheld, occupational noise instruments, safety at work is now in your hands.
Why Do You Need to Monitor Vibration?
The need to monitor vibration has arisen from the permanent health effects over-exposure can cause. This is usually transmitted into the hands and arms of workers using heavy machinery, power tools and vehicles.
Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVs) or Whole Body Vibration (WBV) can cause irreversible damage to muscles, joints, circulation and nerves. The HSE estimates that as many as 5 million people are already exposed to HAV in the workplace, with numbers increasing every year.
The Revo has been designed to allow you to measure, analyse and assess vibration data easily. This will enable you to better protect your workforce from HAVs or WBV and protect your business from potential HSE prosecution.
The Revo Vibration Meter collects important vibration data to help you tackle Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVs or Vibration White Finger). This is caused by over-exposure to vibration from power tools, machinery and vehicles. The HSE estimates there could be up to 5 million sufferers in the UK alone.
Whole Body Vibration
Whole Body Vibration (WBV) is usually transmitted to drivers of tractors, fork lift trucks and other plant machinery. Vibrations from shocks and bumps travel through the seat into the driver, causing back pain. The Revo comes with accessories that allow you to assess the impact of whole body vibration easily.
