Noise Dosimeters are wearable, portable, wireless (cable-free), personal noise exposure meters for occupational and workplace noise measurements. They are designed specifically to monitor an employee’s noise exposure in order to comply with Health and Safety regulations.
A Noise Dosimeter measures and stores sound pressure levels (SPL), and then by processing these measurements over time, provides a cumulative noise exposure reading for a certain period of time, such as a normal working day or week.
Why do you need a noise dosimeter?
Noise dosimeters are personal sound exposure meters (PSEM) for use in working environments where it is simply not practical to follow someone around with a sound level meter all day but where compliance with noise regulations is still vital. The HSE identifies noise dosimetry as a useful way to calculate an individual's exposure to noise for the Employers' responsibilities under the Noise at Work Regulations 2005. They should tell you the noise levels over an entire working day, as well as time history to help health and safety managers assess noise exposure.
Our range of dosimeters are tamper-proof and are mounted on an individual worker's shoulder, close to their ears, where they continuously monitor their sound exposure levels. We offer dosimeters that are data logging so they collect time history data of the noise dose. Typical uses are in factories, industrial units, warehouses, large construction sites, and any other places where workers are exposed to different noisy machinery over their working shifts. They are also ideal for use with lone workers and those who are difficult to reach (for instance, those working in remote sites or in vehicle cabins).
