If personnel in the workplace are exposed to noise that exceeds the exposure standard of 85 dB(A) averaged over an eight hour period or a peak noise level of 140 dB(C) then your workplace is too noisy.
If any one of the following occurs:
- Personnel have to raise their voice to communicate at a distance of 1 metre;
- Personnel have a temporary reduction in hearing or ringing in the ears after leaving work for the day; or
- Personnel use hearing protectors during the work day
then noise may be a problem at your workplace and may require an assessment
AsssA can assist in the development and implementation of noise assessments in the workplace to:
- Identify the sources of the noise
- Identify personnel likely to be exposed to occupational noise
- Assess the effectiveness of existing hearing protection
- Recommend mitigations to eliminate or minimise the noise
Our noise consultants are thoroughly trained experts in the field, always providing you with the most up-to-date information in noise monitoring and management.
AsssA also has regular exposure in developing Noise Management Plans for our clients to ensure local WA council by-laws are being adhered to.
