Noise continues to be a health hazard in workplaces. The Ontario Ministry of Labour (MOL) regulations specify the level of noise allowed during the work day and when hearing protection or noise controls are required.
Our company has performed numerous noise studies and we use the latest electronic survey equipment to collect data. There are two basic types of surveys that can be performed as follows:
Quite often, both types of surveys are done in conjunction with each other. If you have never had a noise level survey done before, then you may want a “Baseline” study done, so that you know where your company stands.
Any time a process changes, it is advisable to resurvey the noise to see how it affects your employees. If it turns out that your company has a noise problem, then you’ll need a hearing conservation program that will protect your employees’ hearing.
