New Range of Safety Officers’ Noise Measurement Kits

Jan 01 2000

Cirrus Research (UK) has just introduced a new range of Safety Officers’ Noise Measurement Kits. Sophisticated, yet easy to operate, the kits are designed to be used by in-house health and safety officers to measure and record occupational (inside) and environmental (outside) noise. They are intended to help organisations meet their legal
obligations with regard to noise safety, without the need to employ external consultants.
Each kit contains a sound level meter and three Cirrus ‘doseBadge’ personal noise dosemeters - small devices worn by individual members of staff to measure the noise they are exposed to during a typical working day. What distinguishes the five separate kits in the range is the specification of the sound level meter selected. As James Tingay, Cirrus Research explains…
“Which sound level monitor (and therefore which kit) customers need will depend on two things: what they want to record, be it noise in the workplace or noise levels at the perimeter fence, and how much data they need to store.
We will help them to choose which is the right kit for their business and demonstrate how it can help them to meet the requirements of the 2005 Control of Noise at Work regulations.”
He continued…“In short these impose a statutory duty on organisations to identify noise hazards, estimate likely exposure to noise, identify measures required to eliminate and reduce risk, control noise exposure, protect employees and keep records. As a result unless your operation remains exactly the same throughout the course of a year, with no
adaptations to processes or equipment used, it is unlikely that an annual check by external noise consultants will suffice. Priced from just £3500, our kits are designed to enable companies to be self-sufficient with regard to noise measurement, to keep within the letter of the law, to prevent claims for damages and avoid problems with neighbours.”
