Sound & Noise

Unwanted noise can cause stress and have a negative impact on quality of life.

Monitoring and controlling noise can be crucially important for organisations particularly those operating in residential areas or where noise generated by their activities could have an impact on neighbouring businesses or the environment.

It is also important to monitor noise in the workplace as part of any organisation’s health and safety strategy. Deafness, tinnitus and other ear conditions can all be caused by exposure to high noise levels. Noise exposure in the workplace is the main cause of permanent hearing loss so limiting exposure to noise in the workplace is crucial for protecting employees and providing a safe working environment.

Unacceptable noise levels can have an impact on public health and the environment.

The impact can range from sleep disruption and speech interference to reduced productivity and hearing loss.

People are now more aware of the impact of noise and controlling noise levels. The impact of unacceptable noise levels can vary from frustrating to extremely serious. From such problems such as sleep disruption and speech interference, to reduced productivity and hearing loss, are all serious concerns and guarding against these is increasingly important.

Our noise monitoring equipment measures commonly used noise parameters such as LAeq, LAmax, LA10, LA90. Our noise monitor can also be used with our Osiris or Topas air pollution monitors to provide a complete monitoring solution.

Some typical uses of our noise monitoring equipment include:
  • Construction sites
  • Industrial sites
  • Road and site traffic
  • Airports
  • Railways
  • Concerts and music festivals
  • Sporting events
  • Motorsports
  • Nightclubs
