  • Noise induced hearing loss: how can you start monitoring your workforce?

    An estimated 20,000 people working during the last year suffered from noise induced hearing loss (NIHL), new as well as longstanding cases, caused or made worse by work.[1]The cause of NIHL is preventable but the affects are permanent, resulting in life changing injuries that can seriously impair a workers’ quality of life. Industries with the highest incidences of NIHL include ...

  • Noise mapping of industrial sources

    Noise is often one of the environmental variables where it seems more difficult to guarantee full compliance with legal limits in complex industrial situations and/or in other multi-source environments. This paper describes the application of noise mapping techniques to industrial sources, such as factories, power plants, wind farms, showing the potential of its use, both at the design stage as ...

  • Noise Measurement

    Definitions Threshold and criterion levels The threshold level is the A-weighted sound level at which a personal noise dosimeter begins to integrate noise into a measured exposure. For example, if the threshold level on a sound level meter is set at 80 decibels (dB), it will capture and integrate into the computation of dose all noise in the employee's hearing zone that equals or exceeds 80 dB. ...


  • Environmental Noise

    Introduction The ability to hear sounds is a sensory function vital for human survival and communication. However, not all sounds are wanted. 'Unwanted sounds', for which the term 'noise' is normally used, often have their origin in human activities (mainly transport, industry and households). This article addresses environmental noise ­ also referred to in the scientific literature as ...

  • An Industrial Noise Map is Basic to Hearing Conservation

    An Industrial Noise Map Is Basic to Hearing Conservation In the U.S., OSHA has set regulations on worker noise exposure. The usual measurement method is to use a portable noise dosimeter attached to a worker that measures noise exposure as the person moves about the work area. However, this does nothing to identify the source and location of the noise. When conducing a noise survey, a noise ...

  • Occupational noise - Noise control at the workplace starts with measurements

    We often automatically turn to personal protective equipment in order to restrict noise. Yet there are other solutions. NoiseAtWork software enables us to map the situation quickly. It has been scientifically proven that exposure to noise which exceeds 80 dB(A) causes hearing loss, but lower levels can also cause physical and mental complaints. Noise also has a disruptive effect on communication ...

  • Plugging Entertainment Noise

    Have you noticed that the PPE manufacturers are rushing out new devices – “now with added less protection” – for lower levels of noise exposure and for the entertainment industry? I can personally recommend these plugs for rock concerts – the music sounds better, but you do have to forgo the traditional post-gig head-buzz and “temporary” deafness. Talking ...

  • Personal Noise Solutions for Miners

    Throughout the working day, miners are continually exposed to varying levels of noise which can result in hearing loss. For safety reasons it is important to monitor employees’ noise exposure and Cirrus Research has created such a device in the form of the CR: 110A doseBadge. The Cirrus Research doseBadge is the original wireless personal noise dosemeter. It is the ideal tool to carry out ...

  • Seeking Clarity in Noise

    Environmental noise regulation can be frustrating. The noise limits, applicable measurement metrics, assessment methods and level of enforcement vary a lot by region and jurisdiction and rarely do they all align. Historically, noise emitters and sensitive receivers could afford to use distance to separate themselves. Consequently, environmental noise laws were first developed in regions with high ...
