Occupational and Workplace Noise Surveys

Noise Surveys for Occupation and Workplaces

Occupational &
Workplace Noise Surveys

IEC provides workplace noise surveys and assessments for a variety of businesses including mineral/waste sites, wood and plastic processing, metal products manufacture or repair and entertainment premises.

The Control of Noise at Work Regulations (2005) places a duty on employers to ensure that noise exposure levels are controlled.  There may be a requirement to provide appropriate hearing protection, conduct ongoing health surveillance and regularly assess procedures and working patterns within the workplace.

The use of hearing protection should not be used as an alternative to controlling noise by technical and organisational means. Where specific areas cannot be reduced below the designated level they should be demarcated as Hearing Protection Zones within which the use of hearing protection is mandatory.

Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL)

Noise induced hearing loss (NIHL) is irreversible damage to the ears caused by exposure to high levels of noise. It is important that employers have an up to date workplace noise assessment to protect employees and avoid a claim for compensation for NIHL.

Noise Assessment Reports

IEC provides noise assessment reports in compliance with the regulations and provides recommendations for noise control measures. Site surveys are carried out using noise dosimetry and hand-held sound level meters, with consideration of time employees spend carrying out specific tasks in order to calculate the workers daily exposure (LEP,d – normalised to an 8 hour day) and impulsive noise events (LCpeak).

IEC is also able to provide Hand-Arm Vibration (HAV), Whole-Body Vibration (WBV) and occupational dust monitoring (EH40) assessments.
