The Importance of Noise Measurement

Noise measurement is a critical aspect of workplace safety, particularly in industries such as construction, manufacturing, and mining where noise levels can often exceed safe limits. According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), over 17,000 people in the UK suffer from work-related hearing conditions, primarily due to exposure to excessive noise at work.

Without proper noise measurement and control, workers are at risk of developing noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL), a condition that can lead to permanent hearing damage. Moreover, excessive noise can also contribute to stress, reduced productivity, and even accidents due to lack of concentration or inability to hear warnings.

Understanding Noise Levels and Exposure Limits

The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 sets out the legal obligations for employers to protect their workers from high levels of noise. The regulations specify a lower exposure action value of 80 dB and an upper exposure action value of 85 dB, above which protective measures must be implemented.

However, understanding these levels and ensuring compliance can be challenging without the right equipment. This is where Accudata Ltd comes in.
