Excessive Noise levels - are your employees at risk?27th sep 2018
How do you know if you have a noise at work problem?
Hearing loss caused by exposure of workers to excessive noise levels at work continues to be a significant occupational disease. As an employer, it’s your legal requirement to ensure you comply with the Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 and the Health & Safety Executive. But how do you know if you have a noise at work problem?
According to the HSE some 17,000 people in the UK currently suffer Noise-Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL), tinnitus or other preventable ear conditions as a result of exposure to excessive noise at work, and many more are at risk of occupational deafness in the future.
Use the Pulsar Nova Range of Sound Meters
To tackle this issue, noise at work experts Pulsar Instruments has developed its Pulsar Nova range of sound meters to help Health and Safety Practitioners quickly and easily identify where there are excessive noise levels and take control to prevent employee hearing loss.
The Nova range consists of six powerful sound meters. Their functionality covers everything from entry-level noise measurement through to high-performance noise monitoring, however, they all combine advanced noise measurement technology with ease of use and durability. Additional features can also be added to tailor the sound meter to any task required.
Every model in the range is supplied with Pulsar’s AnalyzerPlus software package as standard, which together with the data logging feature (an additional feature on some models), allows users to download their measurement data onto a computer for analysis and to create a variety of HSE compliant reports.
Suitable for all Health and Safety Practitioners, the Nova’s are:
