Workplace Noise Assessments
Wave Dynamics provide the full scope of workplace noise (Occupational) assessments to industry
Occupational noise refers to the level of sound energy that reaches an employee’s ears while they are working in an industrial setting. It is commonly associated with occupational safety and health because prolonged exposure to high noise levels can lead to permanent hearing damage.
Conducting a noise risk assessment has now become a regulatory requirement in most workplaces, whether they are industrial or commercial, including factories, call centers, offices, nightclubs, bars, and transportation services by train, air, or road.
During the risk assessment, the levels of noise that employees are exposed to are measured. It is then determined whether any employees are subjected to noise levels equal to or exceeding specific thresholds, such as a lower exposure action value, an upper exposure action value, or an exposure limit value. The exposure of employees to noise should be controlled or eliminated.
