A noise assessment is essential for loud workplaces as it ensures the health and safety of all employees, provides guidance on your compliance with the OHS noise regulations as well as recommendations relevant to achieving full compliance. The assessment also provides you with a noise map for the area detailing where high noise levels occur and where hearing protection zones are required.
The noise assessment will also provide you understanding on how to reduce noise and how to monitor noise in the workplace to ensure risks are kept to acceptable levels.
