The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 came into effect in April 2006 and are designed to protect workers against risk to their health arising from exposure to noise at work. A range of sound meters are available from us which can be used to measure sound levels and monitor a worker’s exposure to excessive noise levels in the workplace. We also run a free seminar which covers the requirements of the Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 and a training course covering the aspects of sound level measurement, usage of meters and understanding the results.
Our sound level meter kits range from simple sound level meters for spot checks and basic monitoring to sound meter kits for long term noise monitoring and include dosemeters to measure sound exposure and noise activated systems to help warn about excessive noise.
Legislation in Australia and European countries closely follows the Control of Noise at Work Regulations, with similar noise action levels. Our sound meters are designed to be setup in accordance with measurement levels relating to noise at work legislation so dosemeters and sound meters measuring exposure levels can be assigned specific exchange and criterion levels while noise warning signs can have a specific set level for activation.
If you are unsure of which meter is right for you or want help in where to start with noise measurements then contact us today. We can advise on the right training and meters for your application or, if the job seems too daunting, we can provide a consultancy for your company.
Two basic kits can be used for noise level tests without the need for full compliance. These kits give an indication of noise levels and can be used for spot checks.
