Noise Exposure Risk
Apart from the most obvious adverse effect that noise can have on people such as loss of hearing, excessive noise levels can also attribute to other major health concerns such as increased stress, increased blood pressure and even increased heart rate.
Vibration Exposure Risk
L&D can also assess occupational vibration exposure from hand, arm and whole body vibration, comparing the results against relevant exposure standards and recommending mitigation controls to reduce exposure.
How Can L&D Help?
L&D’s highly skilled acoustic consultants have been approved by the Department of Mines and Petroleum and are recognised by Worksafe as competent to carry out noise assessments. Our consultants can assess noise levels in workplaces to assess employee exposure to noise and any potential health risks posed by noise. By taking precise measurements and comparing the results against relevant exposure standards, our acoustic consultants can provide solutions specific to your workplace to reduce your workforce’s exposure to noise.
OH&S Noise & Vibration Management Plans
Once an Acoustic OHS assessment has been conducted our consultants can then develop a management plan relevant to your work processes. This plan works to significantly reduce any noise and vibration that your employees may be exposed to.
Our experienced consultants provide assistance with a number of strategies to reduce liability, including:
- Employee & Individual Assessments
- Ergonomics & Manual Handling
- Noise Monitoring
- Hand and Whole Body Vibration Monitoring
- Equipment, Vehicle, Plant and Job Design
- Heat Stress & Physical Workload Monitoring
- Workplace Exercise and Warm-Ups Programs
- Training Programs
- Toolbox Sessions
Want An Assessment?
Once an assessment has been completed you will then receive a professional survey report that details all the survey’s findings along with the necessary recommendations. All of our Occupational Hygiene consultants are CONTAM registered (an internationally recognised governing body).
All of our services are tailored to meet your environments and use techniques that suit your company’s philosophy.
