This noise assessment report consists of:
A noise assessment report is a document that assesses the impact of noise in a work environment. It includes both the noise source and its effects on the surrounding area and measures the sound levels at various points. It can help identify potential health and safety hazards from noise exposure and help you mitigate potential problems before they arise.
This noise assessment report is designed to assist you conduct a noise assessment on your work activities that emit an ‘at risk level’ of noise, which may have the potential to damage hearing.
The intent of this noise assessment report is to determine the level of noise emitted from your workplace and to ascertain if noise control measures are adequate.
A workplace noise assessment is a process of identifying and evaluating the noise levels in a workplace. The goal of a noise assessment is to identify any potential hazards to hearing health and to recommend controls to reduce noise levels to an acceptable level.
Here are the main steps involved in completing a workplace noise assessment:
1. Identify the noise sources. The first step is to identify all of the noise sources in the workplace. This includes both fixed sources, such as machinery and equipment and variable sources, such as people talking and traffic.
2. Measure the noise levels. Once the noise sources have been identified, the next step is to measure the noise levels. This is done using a sound level meter. The sound level meter will measure the sound pressure level in decibels (dB).
3. Evaluate the noise levels. The noise levels are then evaluated to determine if they are a potential hazard to hearing health. Work health and safety laws have established exposure limits for noise. If the noise levels exceed the exposure limits, then there is a potential risk of hearing damage.
4. Recommend controls. If the noise levels exceed the exposure limits, then controls need to be recommended to reduce the noise levels. There are a number of different control measures that can be used, such as engineering controls, administrative controls and personal protective equipment (PPE).
5. Implement the controls. Once the controls have been recommended, they need to be implemented. This may include installing engineering controls, implementing administrative controls and providing PPE to workers.
A workplace noise assessment is an important tool for protecting the hearing of workers. By following these steps above, you can complete a noise assessment that will help to identify and reduce noise levels to an acceptable level.
Note: There are legal obligations to manage noise at a workplace.
