Vibration limit


Leicester instrumentation firm Five Sides Industrial has developed a tool timer, which enables operatives to calculate their exposure time when dealing with safety rules on hand-arm vibration and noise. The Power Tool Timer can attach either to electric or to pneumatic tools, requiring no external power and no calibration. It is reset with a key to avoid the risk of tampering.
