Workplace health risk prevention experts, Reactec, has announced the appointment of Gary Smith as their new Senior Business Development Manager. Gary brings extensive experience of implementing real-time monitoring solutions to proactively prevent health and safety risks in industrial settings across the UK and Europe.

As Senior Business Development Manager, Gary will work with Reactec’s customers within the construction, rail and highways sectors to help them take greater control over their workplace risk environment. By adopting Reactec’s wearable technology, the R-Link* smart watch and cloud-based data analytics, employers can manage exposure to vibration and dangerous proximity to operating hazards in real-time.

Gary’s career has ranged from implementing gas detection systems to noise-induced hearing loss prevention technology within a variety of industrial settings. Gary previously worked with hearing protection specialists, Minuendo, based in Norway, as their Key Account Manager. Prior to that, Gary held various roles at ION Science Limited including Business Unit Manager, Export Sales Manager and Global Business Manager, over a nine-year period.

Commenting on Gary’s appointment, Jacqui McLaughlin, Chief Executive of Reactec said: “We are very pleased to welcome Gary to the team. Gary brings a wealth of commercial experience in workplace risk prevention technologies. This will be invaluable to Reactec as we continue to promote our connected wearable technology and data analytics to manage exposure to vibration, noise, dust and dangerous proximity to moving vehicles.”

Gary Smith, Senior Business Development Manager, added: “I am thrilled to become part of the Reactec team and I am really excited to be working with forward-thinking companies who are proactively exploring how the latest technology can help them to tackle some of the most common health and safety risks in the workplace.”  

On 18 and 19 October, Gary and the Reactec team will be attending the Highways UK conference at the NEC in Birmingham. If you’d like to meet with the team at the expo, get in touch to make an appointment or visit stand 241B.

*In July 2022, Reactec launched its third-generation wearable device, the R-Link smart watch, which simultaneously monitors real-time exposure to Hand Arm Vibration alerting when exposure is dangerous and provides proximity warnings when the wearer enters the exclusion zone of a hazard. The R-Link watch, with its supporting fully integrated eco-system, and the powerful Reactec Analytics software, to transform the data, means Reactec delivers an unprecedented view of an employees’ risk environment to allow employers to refine controls and prevent future risk.
