The Occupational Health and Safety Regulation 2007 require employers to take action to reduce the incidence and severity of hearing loss within their workplace by identifying, assessing and controlling risks arising from exposure of employees to noise in the workplace.
HSEI can assist your business with personal and workplace noise testing.
Noise assessments are undertaken by attaching noise monitoring equipment (Dosimeters) to a number of representative employees at the workplace.
The Dosimeters are worn by the employees preferably for the entire shift.
The noise data collected is then analysed to determine the employee’s eight hour exposure level and their peak noise exposure.
