The purpose of obtaining a noise survey is to evaluate and identify the hazardous noise levels at your facility to determine if a hearing conservation program is required per OSHA and MSHA regulations. Federal noise regulations highly recommend the evaluation of potential noise hazards in the workplace every two years or sooner if changes take place such as the addition of new equipment, building modifications, or a change in the length of work shifts.
Environmental noise assessments depend on many factors. The particular facility, or equipment being evaluated, as well as those requirements outlined by city, state or federal regulations. Day and nighttime measurements are available for homeowner residential noise issues, as well as industrial complexes.
