CSCS cards provide smart ways to reduce vibration damage

Reactec has enhanced its software so that CSCS cards can be used to allocate its HAV monitors to a worker at the start of their shift and to alert the worker to exposure risk relative to their personalised safe exposure limits. This means that, as long as they hold a valid CSCS card, their exposure can be monitored even when they work across multiple sites or with several employers where there are various occupational health policies requiring different exposure thresholds.
