Noise Testing in Birmingham – Project Overview

Noiseair recently carried out a Noise Risk Assessment at a local Birmingham manufacturing company employing around 15 people. Like many manufacturing processes there was a variety of engineering machinery being used on a day-to-day basis and after undertaking a detailed assessment using a Type 1 sound level meter we could assess noise levels at individual workstations and identify the noise exposure to employees over a typical shift pattern.

Upon completion of the noise testing in Birmingham a concise report was issued to our client outlining noise levels specifically relating to the factory processes and mitigation measures and recommendations relating to points of concern as required.
