Vibration and noise are often referred to as hidden hazards, due to the delayed nature of harm caused by exposure over time. But be in no doubt, that damage to health caused by these two hazards are very real, long-lasting, and in most cases permanent.
The first step in preventing harm is to identify whether vibration or noise are likely to be a problem. This is where we can help with a preliminary audit of your workplace, assessing tasks undertaking and measuring vibration and noise levels. The next step is to calculate exposures over a defined period of time, usually the equivalent of an average 8 hour working day. Then finally, to assess the risks present and put in place suitable controls to limit exposure down to safe levels.
We can also help with writing vibration and noise policies and procedures and delivering employee training.
