Tool assessments and testing

Detailed and full equipment assessments for your tools;


Using power tool examinations and on-site assessments for vibration & noise levels allows us to gather real life data for risk assessment and management of staff, so you don’t exceed the permitted usage levels in the latest legislation. 

Noise testing.

To successfully protect workforces from the effects of excessive noise in the workplace we offer individual tool and equipment noise assessments, or a detailed full-factory noise testing assessment. We can recommend and supply lower-noise product alternatives where necessary.


Vibration testing.

Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) is a serious but preventable condition that can put employees and business at risk. We can help you identify when hand/arm and whole-body vibration may cause harm and we’ll arrange for power tool examinations to be carried out on-site to assess for vibration levels during use. This allows us to gather real life data for risk assessment and staff management, so you don’t exceed the permitted usage levels in the latest legislation. 


Tool tagging and asset tracking

Inventory management for fixed and mobile assets;


Choose from standard designs or your own bespoke print. Handy Tags are suitable for compliance in the following areas:

• Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (e.g.   Cherry Pickers)
• Scaffolding
• Forklift
• Chemical Safety
• Vibration levels 
• Noise Monitoring
• Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER)


RFID tool tag

To assist in managing your full site inventory, including both mobile and fixed assets, we offer a comprehensive range of RFID Tags (Radio-Frequency Identification) and readers to suit all applications across all industry sectors from construction to facilities management. RFID helps with tool location, service, calibration, testing, booking in and booking out.

This is a range of coloured, laser etched, rigid or flexible tags for safety and warning purposes allowing operators to see maximum usage times. The tags include critical information such as Hand Arm Vibration (HAV) warning, noise warning, fuel and liquid tags, chemical tags, scaffolding tags and much more. Choose from standard designs or your own bespoke print.
