Corporate risks and responsibilities

noise iconOccupational hearing loss is often gradual, following prolonged exposure to noise. The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 require employers to take action if daily or weekly exposure to noise is at or in excess of Exposure Action Levels. Commissioning a professional noise assessment is the most effective way to establish this.

What type of noise assessment do you need?

Preliminary noise survey

noise gaugeA preliminary noise survey involves taking measurements throughout an area. This provides information that enables us to identify:

  • Areas where employees are likely to be exposed to harmful levels of noise.
  • Machines and equipment that generate harmful levels of noise.
  • Groups of employees who might be exposed to unacceptable noise levels.
  • Noise control options to reduce noise exposure.

Detailed noise survey

  • Assessing noise levels in specific areas.
  • Assessing exposure for people working with specific equipment.

Noise exposure survey

  • Individual noise assessments.
  • Predictive noise exposure modelling.
  • Personal dosimetry.
  • Representative worst case monitoring.

Advice on hearing protection devices (HPDs)

noise protectorsHearing protection devices can reduce noise exposure levels, and the risk of hearing loss. If hearing protection is required, then a complete hearing conservation program should be implemented. Our qualified consultants’ expertise can prove particularly valuable in this scenario.
