Excessive noise can be found in any workplace, from loud music being played in a bar or youth fashion store through to heavy machinery being used in a construction environment or on an industrial worksite. Repeated exposure to excessive levels of noise can lead to employees suffering everything from hearing loss to tinnitus, which is why regulations are put in place to determine and enforce an acceptable level of noise in the workplace. If you’re concerned that the levels of noise in your work environment exceed acceptable standards, speak to one of the occupational noise consultants at AMCOSH about conducting an occupational noise assessment.
AMCOSH has been providing Melbourne workplaces in the public and private sectors with comprehensive occupational noise assessment evaluations since 2003, giving employers and employees the opportunity to co-exist in a working environment with minimal chance of harm to their health and wellbeing. The most commonplace and precise form of assessment is dosimetry, which is what our occupational noise consultants use to assess noise levels. This provides the most accurate reading and requires minimal paperwork from the employer.
At the end of the occupational noise assessment, you’ll be provided with a detailed report that outlines our findings and offers workable solutions to either reduce noise levels or enhance protection for employees. To speak to an occupational noise consultant, get in touch with AMCOSH today.
