Vibrations Analysis & Noise Measurement


Employees that are exposed to high levels of noise and vibration are at particular risk in their health and safety. At OHSS, we specialise in all aspects of vibrations analysis and noise measurement, from environmental conditions to control methods. High noise levels can damage the inner ears and cause hearing loss, and the vibrations levels from certain mechanical devices can cause damage to the nervous and vascular systems. Workers that are exposed to hazardous conditions like these require immediate attention. Our expert vibrations analysts can assess your equipment and the environment to determine if any risks exist, and determine what measure need to be taken if there is a hazard. We can perform field noise and vibration measurements, practical noise and vibration analysis, acoustical audits and surveys, and we offer various impact studies and effective control solutions.

 

During this assessment, we will look at various things, such as the levels of and types of noise, and the duration of exposure. We identify any immediate risks, and help you work to control the situation best: limiting exposure, ensuring ear protection is available and worn, and taking other preventative steps to reduce noise emissions. We also ensure that your company is in full compliance with all regulations and that full safety measures are being followed and properly enforced. With our risk assessment services, you can be sure that your work environment is as safe as it can be for your employees.
