NOISE ASSESSMENTS

WORKING TOGETHER TO PROVIDE YOU WITH PRACTICAL & SCIENTIFIC BASED ADVICE.

Outsource Safety's Occupational Noise Assessment will help you ensure the health and safety of your employees exposed to noise. It will determine how loud the noise is and how long employees are exposed to it by using the latest noise monitoring equipment. Employee noise exposures need to be calculated by determining where they are throughout their shifts.


At Outsource Safety, our Health, Safety & Environmental Consultants are highly qualified and experienced in the measurement and management of occupational noise. They work together to provide you with practical and scientific based advice.

An Occupational Noise Assessment includes: ​

  • Personal sound exposure measurements

  • Individual noise measurements at worker positions and of equipment

  • Octave-band analysis of noise sources to verify if the hearing protection utilised is appropriate

  • Colour-coded noise maps of your workplace

  • Compliance audit of signage, hearing protection and implementation of noise controls

  • Measurement of noise exposure levels and comparison to legislative requirements

  • Recommendations for appropriate hearing protection

  • Suggested engineering noise controls

  • Comprehensive report and action plan with practical control measures

 

The Benefits​

  • Awareness of noise hazards and actions required by state law

  • Safe work environment with the correct PPE for employees

  • Peace of mind that legal risks are minimized

  • Long term hearing protection for your employees

  • Compliance and the avoidance of penalties

 

Your Duty in Relation to Occupational Noise Assessments

As an employer you must identify, assess and control the noise risk to your employees and others. WHS Regulations stipulate that employers have a duty of care to ensure that:​

  • Employees are not exposed to noise which can harm their health and safety

  • Hearing protection and signage is provided if noise is over the Noise Exposure Standard

  • Audio-metric testing of employees is provided if they are required to wear hearing protection

 

Once a noise risk has been identified, you must carry out an Occupational Noise Assessment within the workplace, and every 5 years at a minimum.
