The completion of a Noise Assessment will provide direction and solutions; with the strong aim of reducing the incidence of permanent and irreversible hearing damage caused by an over exposure to excessive noise in the workplace. Under Australian Regulations, noise assessments must be carried out within a period of 5 years after a previous noise assessment was completed. It is important to note that, under Australian Regulations, preventative action must be taken if workers are exposed to noise levels exceeding 85dB(A) SPL over an average 8hr shift or a Peak SPL (Sound Pressure Level) on or exceeding 140dB(C). In addition, longer shifts are also taken into account and calculated accordingly. The preventative action will protect all staff from the potential of permanent and irreversible hearing damage. A Noise Assessment will provide you with useful information, such as the noise exposure for all staff members over their complete shift, finding precisely which staff members are at risk and also prescribing cost effective and intuitive solutions to any problems detected. Our assessments and recommendations are aimed to prevent costly worker's compensation claims and save your business time and money. All of our Noise Assessments are carried out in accordance with the Australian Standard, AS/NZ 1269 Occupational Noise Management requirements, by trained acoustical professionals.
