Noise Surveys

Damage caused to employees by occupational noise-induced hearing loss is an entirely preventable but irreversible condition.

In general, there is poor understanding within industry of how best to control exposure to noise, and employers tend to rely on PPE when other measures, such as noise control, engineering and isolation controls, worker training or administrative controls may be more effective in creating a healthier workplace.

Without measurement of actual levels it is not possible to determine the appropriate noise control methods for any particular environment. A noise survey by Occuhealth to AS/NZS 1269 standard will identify and quantify the nature of noise exposure within the premises, and provide scientifically endorsed recommendations for appropriate noise mitigation measures.
