How to update the current (failing) noise risk management process to make it much more effective – and self-financing Noise Induced Hearing Loss claims of £400,000,000 per annum show that thousands of people are suffering hearing damage, most of which could be avoided by changing the way risk management is is carried out. A simple, innovative approach that dramatically improves the effectiveness of noise risk management was described at the BOHS
Product noise specification and technical file measurements
Noise measurements to provide data for technical notes (e.g. CE marking), standards and contractual specifications (Buy Quiet purchasing policy criteria).
On site noise measurements and analysis include:-
- industrial machine and plant specifications
- buy quiet noise criteria
- sound power measurements – BS EN ISO 3744, BS EN ISO 3746
- consumer white goods
- communications and headsets
- electronic equipment
Sound Power Testing on Site
This includes tests to BS EN ISO 3744 (survey or engineering) and to BS EN ISO 3746. In addition to the standard measurements, however, we can also provide detailed advice on innovative best practice to reduce noise levels using low cost engineering control methods.
