Noise Surveys and Noise Dosimetry
Hearing conservation programs start with identifying noise exposure levels. It is a legal requirement to know if the noise exposure levels in your facility exceed the maximum noise exposure limit and present a hazard to your workers. Across Canada, organizations are legally required to prevent over-exposure. Employers are responsible for any hearing loss that results from over-exposure. In order to determine the exposure, you must conduct a noise survey and/or dosimetry to determine the noise levels. These surveys are also essential in determining the correct grade of hearing protection devices required in your facility. Our noise assessment specialists have over 20 years experience and will work with you to establish noise hazard zones and workstations in your work environment. Once identified, we will recommend specific hearing protection protocols, and offer suggestions for engineered noise reduction solutions. Because tools and machinery tend to get noisier over time, noise surveys and noise dosimetry should be done annually. They will also need to be done whenever there is a change in machinery or building structure. We have helped develop highly effective noise surveys and noise dosimetry programs for thousands of businesses and government organizations across Canada.
