Employers are required to assess staff exposure to noise in the workplace under the Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005.
Research estimates that more than 1.1 million people are exposed to noise levels above 85dB(A), and as a result 170,000 are suffering from tinnitus, deafness or other ear conditions. Over 17,000 suffered noise induced hearing loss (NIHL) in 2014 alone.
EnviroDat can carry out Occupational Noise Monitoring to ensure that your employees are adequately protected, and work with you to develop a plan to reduce or prevent their exposure to high noise levels.
Alongside the taking of static samples for mapping areas of risk, our engineers are able to measure personal exposure by use of noise dosimeters and also assess the effectiveness of any hearing protection used by your employees.
