Casella, a leading manufacturer of occupational hygiene monitoring solutions, has been recognised for product innovation at the prestigious British Safety Industry Federation (BSIF) Safety Awards. Casella’s ground-breaking devices and Airwave app have been commended for simplifying personal sampling for noise and dust for occupational hygienists and health and safety professionals conducting risk assessments.
The new dBadge2 noise dosimeter and Apex2 personal sampling pump for dust are evolutions of popular Casella devices that are used in many industrial businesses worldwide. Light-weight and ergonomically designed, the true innovation behind these products is the ability to connect wirelessly to smart devices via the specially designed Airwave app – an industry first.
BSIF judges were impressed by the level of control this provides, minimising the likelihood of invalid data whilst maximising productivity for health and safety professionals. The devices and app enable users to monitor a worker’s personal noise and dust exposure remotely, in close to real-time and without disrupting their work. It also simplifies reporting by enabling data to be instantly emailed or shared with colleagues, alongside photographs of the task being carried out and any additional field notes.
In addition, dBadge2 and Apex2 both feature a motion sensor that audits whether the instruments have actually been worn, giving users more confidence in the validity of their data.
Casella has also recently launched a new hand arm vibration meter. The HAVex meter tracks the length of time operators are exposed to vibrations emitted from hand-held power tools, calculating total exposure in accordance with current legislation.
