Construction can be a industry where high noise levels are common and where both occupational and environmental noise monitoring may be needed. The measurement and monitoring of noise from construction sites can be carried out using a range of different instruments depending upon the time over which the measurements need to be made.
The noise from vehicles such as cars, buses and trucks is wide spread with many people being affected by these noise sources in their daily lives. All modern vehicles will be designed to meet strict safety and emissions standards as well as noise output levels. All vehicles sold in the EU must comply with a range of noise directives to ensure that they meet these specified noise levels when they are sold and many countries enforce regular checks over the life of the vehicle. Motor Sport noise is a often a source...
Occupational noise is one of the most overlooked risks in the workplace. Ignoring this hazard can result in fines or prosecution from the Regulator, as well as leave your business vulnerable to compensation claims. Why? Exposure to excessive noise levels can cause noise-induced hearing loss or tinnitus. Hearing damage is irreversible, so it is vital to ensure you are protecting your employees and your business.
Environmental Noise is one of the fastest growing areas of noise monitoring, mapping and control. The EU has introduced a number of Directives aimed at increasing the level of information about Environmental Noise across the EU. In 1996, data from the EU Green Paper on Future Noise Policy estimated that around 20% of the EU`s population, or close to 80 million people, suffer from noise levels that experts consider to be unacceptable. Most of these people become annoyed and suffer from sleep deprivation, which...
Occupational noise is one of the most overlooked risks in the workplace. Ignoring this hazard can result in fines or prosecution from the Health & Safety Executive. You are also open to action from Personal Injury Lawyers seeking compensation for Industrial Deafness Claims. Why? Exposure to excessive noise levels can cause noise-induced hearing loss or tinnitus. Hearing damage is irreversible, so it is vital to ensure you are protecting your employees and your business.

Noise ordinance covers the monitoring of noise in major urban areas in the US. Common complaints from residents include: Barking dogs, Noisy neighbours, Loud music, Construction noise, Industrial noise, Transportation noise.
Where unattended monitoring for longer periods is required to obtain more detailed information of the noise climate. Equipment is protected from the weather and powered for longer periods with options to remotely download data.
The construction sector and its wide range of associated activities are very varied and from a noise monitoring perspective offer many unique challenges. However, Pulsar Instruments have a solution; a construction Pulsar noise meter with the ability to effectively assess the following two key categories; Noise at Work (potential for noise induced hearing loss due to long term exposure to noisy activities). Environmental Noise (the potential to cause annoyance to surrounding areas or buildings during site work).
For environmental noise monitoring when short measurements are required using a hand held Sound Level Meter. This could be for boundary monitoring of industrial sites or noise surveys for planning purposes.
In a world where there is a drive for everything to be quieter, vehicle noise measurement and control is a growing application. If measurements need to be made to ISO 5130:2007, which is an internationally recognised standard for vehicle exhaust noise testing, a more detailed measurement needs to be made. ISO 5130:2007 requires three consecutive measurements to ensure repeatability. These measurements are taken at a specified engine speed, or RPM, and the maximum sound level produced during the test is taken.
Workplace noise monitoring is an interesting subject that can appear complex, but it is always worth remembering what you are trying to achieve. This can be summarised as: ““Minimising or avoiding the risk of noise-induced hearing loss in the workplace to comply with local, noise-based, legislation”” Such legislation is usually based on a European Directive that is then modified to suit the needs of each particular country. For example, in the United Kingdom, the ‘The Control of...
