    How are Noise Testing Services undertaken?

    ENVIRO CORP acoustic consultant undertakes testing noise levels and noise measurement in the workplace by attaching noise dosimeters to a worker during their work shift. ENVIRO CORP acoustic consultant also undertakes workplace noise level measurement and sound testing by attaching multiple noise dosimeters to a number of workers simultaneously during their work shifts. By doing this, ENVIRO CORP establishes the noise levels each worker is exposed to during their shift, known as occupational noise exposure. In fact, we place personal noise dosimeters on workers collars and shirts. With these noise dosimeters we mount the microphone on the middle-top of the person’s most exposed shoulder. We can monitor a single worker or multiple workers and assess the noise levels based on their shift length. We can also assess noise levels based on their varying duties. Noise area monitoring and sound level measurement can also be undertaken by noise measurement equipment such as a sound level meter. The selection of appropriate hearing protection class is able to be established by Enviro Corp workplace noise assessments.

    Additionally, ENVIRO CORP undertakes workplace noise assessments and noise measurement to help you maintain your duty of care. A workplace noise assessment will obtain meaningful data that can be used to implement control measures. The workplace noise assessment also helps us make necessary changes if noise exposure levels are above the guideline limits. Noise control measures include elimination or substitution with administrative controls, engineering controls or personal protective equipment.

    Health Effects of Noise Exposure

    Exposure to high levels of noise can cause permanent hearing loss. Short term exposure to loud noise can also cause a temporary change in hearing or a ringing in your ears (tinnitus). Repeated exposures to loud noise can lead to permanent tinnitus and/or hearing loss.


    Loud noise can also create physical and psychological stress, reduce productivity, interfere with communication and concentration, and contribute to workplace accidents and injuries by making it difficult to hear warning signals. The effects of noise induced hearing loss can limit the ability to hear high frequency sounds, understand speech, and seriously impair the ability to communicate.


    Other effects that can be caused by high noise levels include anxiety, depression, high blood pressure and heart disease.

    Frequently asked questions:

    A workplace noise assessment is an assessment to determine the sources of noise. Once the sources of noise have been identified, the next step is to measure the noise levels. Noise level results are then compared with the acceptable levels.

    A workplace noise assessment is a critical component of maintaining a safe and healthy work environment. By identifying potential sources of noise and measuring noise levels, employers can take steps to reduce noise exposure and protect their workers from the harmful effects of excessive noise.
    Workplace noise is measured with a sound level meter or noise dosimeter.

    Hazardous noise affects the functioning of the inner ear, which may cause temporary or permanent hearing loss. Noise at levels that do not damage hearing can have other adverse health effects. Persistent noise stress can increase the risk of fatigue and cardiovascular disorders including high blood pressure and heart disease.

    A person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU) has a primary duty to ensure the health and safety of workers while they are at work in the business or undertaking and to organise a workplace noise assessment.

    The WHS Regulations set the exposure standard for noise at an LAeq,8h of 85 dB(A) and a peak noise level at 140 dB(C), which protects most but not all people. Therefore, workplace noise should be kept lower than the exposure standard for noise if reasonably practicable.
