According to estimates from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), 21,000 workers suffered with work related hearing problems between 2017 and 2019, with industrial hearing loss accounting for ~75% of all occupational disease claims. Worldwide, it is estimated that up to 24% of instances of hearing impairment are related to noise exposure in the workplace.
Correct monitoring procedure requires correct equipment. Body-worn noise dosimeters allow safety managers to monitor workers individual noise exposure throughout an entire shift pattern as they move through different areas of their work environments and are exposed to different noise sources. When levels for specific areas need to be taken with a high degree of accuracy, in order to perform potentially necessary actions such as noise control, calculating hearing protection requirements or demarking hearing protection zones, using a Sound Level Meter (SLM) gives the confidence of accurate and comprehensive spot-readings.
