There are two different methods that we use to test your facility’s noise levels: Noise Survey and/or Personal Sampling. A Noise Survey shows your workers’ noise exposure by workstation and is appropriate when the noise levels are steady and workers’ movement can be followed or accompanied. It is most suitable for production or cyclical tasks when short term noise exposure are same as that for any other part of day. Lex, energy-averaged noise exposure, would be determined around each workstation. Personal Sampling is appropriate when worker’s movement cannot be followed or accompanied, or where work pattern may be unpredictable.
Who is this for?
What does it involve?
Step 1: Scoping meeting
First things first, we want to find out your risk level! We call this the scoping meeting. During this step, an advisor will come out to your facility to determine if you have a combination of conditions that put you at risk. Based on your facility, we will advise if you need a Noise Survey, Personal Sampling or a combination of both in order to evaluate the hazard(s).
Step 2: The proposal
The program administrator will send you a service proposal that will outline the costs and deliverables based on the findings from the scoping meeting. Once this proposal is signed and returned, we can book a date for your service(s).
Step 3: The deliverables
Our specialist advisor will complete an assessment report that includes noise exposure levels and recommendations. A digital copy of this report will be sent to you for your records. They will also review your existing hearing conservation program.
