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.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 manufacturing, construction, energy and extraction. Prolonged exposure to dangerous levels of noise in the workplace is concerning...
Meteorological data monitoring at photo-voltaic power plants in the US - Case Study
The Imperial Valley Solar Company has built the largest photo-voltaic power plant of the USA and the Lufft WS500- and WS503-UMB compact weather sensors are an important part of this project. Another large project in the US was the solar plant installation at the Regional Training Institute of the National Guard in Fort Pickett, Virginia.
Weather monitoring at German Landfills - Case Study
According to the Landfill Regulation and Federal Emission Law in Germany it is mandatory on landfills to monitor weather data such as temperature, precipitation, evaporation, wind direction and speed. This is not only good for environmental protection purposes but also for the residents nearby. In this regard two new Lufft weather stations and one Lufft wind sensor were set up recently in Hamberg and Esslingen.Weather data at Landfill Hamberg mbHThe Landfill Hamberg close to Maulbronn had searched for a new...
What are the main indicators of water quality?
“Water is the driving force of all nature;” so said Leonardo da Vinci. The survival of our planet depends on the availability of water and the condition that it is in. It is therefore vital to make sure that it is able to provide a hospitable environment for those that live in it, and is free from harmful levels of substances for those that drink it. Not monitoring water quality levels can have detrimental impacts on ecosystems and qualities of life. This can range for disrupting or damaging aquatic...
Who Needs Continuous Emissions Monitoring?
Continuous emissions monitoring (CEM) is about monitoring air pollutants generated by a specific activity and emitted to the ambient air, typically through a tall stack or other exhaust pipe. The “activity” can be some industrial process like a power plant or a waste incinerator, but it can also be on a much smaller scale such as a car equipped with an internal-combustion engine.The need to monitor emissions has traditionally originated from national and local environmental authorities who wish to...
