Noise Exposure Assessments

Noise is an unwanted or damaging sound that my have the following health effect to the exposed employee:

  • damage to hearing and
  • cause other health effects like stress, hypersensitivity to noise, increased blood pressure and increased heart rate.
  • interference with communication which could lead to accidents.

With the use of sound level meters, our occupational hygiene team is in an ideal position to quantify the amount of noise at your workplace. This will allow zoning of noisy areas for hearing conservation and for the implementation of noise reduction programs, which include the revision of engineering processes.

We can also determine the exact amount that an employees is personally exposed to during his or hear work shift. This is achieved by means of personal noise dosimeters that we affix to the employee. We will be able to advise you on the suitability of hearing protection that is in place  and advise on hearing conservation programs.
