“An initial noise assessment should be performed in any work area where workers must raise their voices to be heard over background noise. The assessment should include work areas that are indoors, outdoors and in mobile equipment.”

Noise Dosimetry & Noise Level Survey
Workers that are exposed to high levels of noise on a consistent basis can develop noise-induced hearing loss. It is the role of employers to ensure their workers are safe and protected against these dangerous levels. Rocky Mountain Mobile Hearing Testing can help by measuring and assessing the sound levels of workplaces throughout Alberta, Saskatchewan and Eastern BC with our noise level survey.
The goal of this survey is to determine the noise levels in your workplace and occupational exposure of your employees. Once data is collected we compare it to OHS guidelines and recommendations made to ensure compliance. Noise dosimetry services measure the individual noise exposure level of workers, over the course of a standard workday. This is a key time-based measurement in determining whether an employee is considered noise-exposed and must participate in your noise management program.
Within a few hours, we can safely evaluate your workplace and your employees. We won’t disrupt your operations and will provide exceptional on-point data results. This data can help you bring your site up to OHS standards and provide your workers with the protection they deserve.
What is a Noise Assessment Survey?
All workplaces have an ebb and flow when it comes to noise levels. Determining which areas are more dangerous than others for employees is important, so they can procure the right protection. It’s here that a noise assessment survey will prove invaluable. With our trained experts and our mobile facility, our team will utilize sound mapping and noise dosimetry to locate areas where workers are exposed to harmful noise levels, such as near machinery, equipment, and controls. Once the assessment is complete, you will be handed an occupational noise survey report, with suggestions and areas that require improvement. This report can help your workplace align with health and safety codes and provide your employees with required protection, such as custom-molded ear plugs.
Permanent hearing loss results from exposure to noise above 85 dBA for an 8 hour day or its equivalent (85 dBA Lex).
