What exactly is a Workplace Noise Assessment or Noise Survey?

The terms noise assessment, noise survey, workplace noise testing, occupational noise assessment and workplace noise assessment are all interchangeable. To put them simply a noise assessment is the process of having a professional attend your business and measure the noise levels generated throughout your operations.

Each occupational noise assessment is different to the one before it as each business is unique. An assessor will attend your business and using equipment as specified in the Australia Standard for Occupational Noise Management will measure noise generated from machinery, tools and the environment from which your employee’s work within.

The Assessor will provide you with a workplace noise assessment report and if you are a HIVE Noise Assessment client  you will also receive a colour-coded noise map, compliance action plan and a full de-brief on your noise survey results.
