Measuring noise in the working environment

Measuring noise in the work environment is an important part of protecting and keeping your employees safe. In fact, noise is one of the most common environmental factors that can negatively affect human health – depending on its occurrence and intensity, it can affect mood, ability to concentrate, ability to communicate and health. If a person is exposed to high levels of noise over a long period of time or extremely high levels of noise over a short period of time, it can irreversibly damage their hearing. Therefore, workplace noise levels must be monitored and appropriate measures taken to reduce the risk. Various methods of measuring noise are used to do this, both at the receiving end (where people live or work) and to determine the characteristics of the noise source.

Noise measurement in the context of OSH

When measuring noise in the working environment, we focus on determining the overall noise levels, identifying the sources and determining whether these levels are within the permissible limits set by the law. Most often, the measurement in the working environment is required for the categorization of work within the context of OSH, which is documented to the relevant regional sanitary station. Noise measurements are carried out from workplaces where attention- and concentration-intensive activities are carried out to production areas.

Our testing laboratory is equipped with professional measuring instruments from Bruel&Kjaer for all cases. The output of the tests is an accredited test report in Czech and the language you require.
