The Project – Commercial Document Shredding Facility
A noise at work assessment was requested by our client, a commercial document shredding company, based in Wrexham, North Wales. We assessed all employees and processes based in the workshop, the data collected from the assessment was then used to calculate employee noise exposure.
Machinery and work processes assessed included, fork-lift vehicle movements in and around the workshop, the document shredding process, bailing machine operations and loading & unloading procedures.
We were on site for approximately 2 hours and the acoustic report issued within a few days of our visit. The report was first issued in draft format, giving our client the opportunity to read through and fully understand the report and ask any questions, prior to the final version report being issued.
What are the Noise Exposure & Action Levels?
An action level is a noise exposure level at which employers are required to take certain steps to reduce the harmful effects of noise on hearing. There are two main action levels for continuous noise.
- The lower exposure action level is a daily or weekly average noise exposure level of 80 dB, at which the employer must provide information and training and make hearing protection available.
- The upper exposure action level is set at a daily or weekly average noise exposure of 85 dB, above which the employer is required to take reasonable measures to reduce noise exposure, such as engineering noise control, noise at source etc. The use of hearing protection is also mandatory if the noise cannot be controlled by these measures, or while these measures are being planned or carried out.
- Lastly there is an exposure limit of 87 dB, above which no worker can be exposed (taking hearing protection into account).
