Noise At Work
NoiseAir was recently approached to carry out a Noise Risk Assessment at a commercial document shredding facility in Wrexham, North Wales. The primary concerns of the company were not only the shredding machinery itself, but also the noise emanating from other processes at the site, particularly the fork-lift vehicle operation and use of the bailing machines, as well as loading and unloading procedures.
Our consultants assessed all employees and processes based in the workshop. The data collected from the assessment was then used to calculate the noise exposure for individual employees and job roles. The company were then provided with a technical report with results and appropriate recommendations as appropriate areas of increased noise exposure.
