Each year compensation claims are made across the globe for noise-induced hearing loss. This type of hearing loss is a significant problem in many work places, but it can be prevented. A thorough and professional Noise Assessment will ensure that your workers hearing is protected from excessive noise. We as Periculum Global have the expertise and experience to provide an independent, comprehensive assessment designed to keep your employees safe and meet all your legal obligations.
Excessive Noise, although seemingly simple to control results in compensation claims equating to millions of pounds per year, it is common for assessors to complete stationary noise dose assessments and recommend controls / EPP based on a limited sample. This may seem effective but in reality, does very little in ensuring compliance or actually controlling the Hazard of Noise.
Using advanced technology and software such as DoseBadge5 we as Periculum Global are able to provide one of the most comprehensive services on the market. By actively monitoring your operative’s exposure to Noise over working periods (Normally 8 Hours) we are able to calculate total exposure levels and provide a detailed analysis on the required Engineering solutions and EPP.
