Occupational noise dosimeter surveys are a great tool for assessing the individual exposures to the operator, another approach is looking at noise levels in a designated zone.
This can be created by taking measurements with a SLM (Sound Level Meter) and inputting data into a noise mapping program. This survey will present a map with noise level contours of the site’s manufacturing areas or operations.
The noise map approach of assessing occupational noise can provide valuable insight to a manager and make decisions such as where to place a new piece of machinery to streamline a process or where engineering controls are required. This analysis can if performed annually highlight the changes in productivity comparable to changes to noise level exposures to areas.Call for an Assessment
