Occupational noise-induced hearing loss is a major compensable industrial disease in Australia and entails substantial economic costs.
Exposure to excessive noise also entails largely unrecognised costs to organisations by way of increased employee turnover and absenteeism, lowered performance and possible contribution to accidents.
The Queensland Workplace Health and Safety Regulations places responsibility for implementing a noise management plan on the employer.
Noise exposure management is one of our fields of expertise. Our consultants have extensive hands-on experience in conducting workplace noise exposure assessments.
Areas or machines that may pose a risk to hearing can be identified and ranked in order of impact on exposure. We can identify and recommend simple and practical controls that can help minimise noise exposures within your workplace.
As part of our surveys we also assess current work practices and hearing protection use and suitability.
The following list shows a complete overview of our noise exposure management services:
All noise exposure assessments are conducted utilising precision integrating sound level meters and personal sound exposure meters in accordance with the relevant OHS regulations, codes of practice and Australian standards.
