A noise assessment is a detailed measurement and monitoring of levels of sound (air pressure waves) in the area that is under assessment. The assessment will determine the frequency and amplitude of the sound in the air to provide the required information for a noise risk assessment. A noise assessment is very similar to recording the sound in a defined area, but is requires high precision equipment and well trained and qualified personnel to perform the measurement and complete the survey.
There are two main types of damages that can be caused to employees due to exposers to high levels of noise as physiological and psychological. Exposure to high levels of noise over a prolonged period of time can cause permanent loss of hearing. Noise is a common issue in many industrial facilities.
The main relevant legislation covering the control of noise in the workplace is the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work (General Application) Regulations 2007, Chapter 1 of Part 5: Control of Noise at Work. Under these regulations, when employees are likely to be exposed to noise at work above the lower exposure action value, an employer is obliged to carry out a detailed Noise Risk Assessment, completed by a competent person.
If any employee is likely to be at risk from noise, the employer must establish and implement a programme of technical and organisational measures to reduce exposure. Personal protective equipment (ear plugs or ear muffs) is always a last resort to reduce exposure if no other measures have been successful at reducing the exposure to noise. There are action levels and there are limit values that would guide the employers in assessing the risk and determining the required actions.
