Frequently Asked Questions

Below are some of the questions we are asked by our clients regarding Noise at Work Assessments.

Absolutely. It has been scientifically proven that physical and psychological strain from noise may result in approximately 25-30% performance loss among office workers. Plus, a noisy workplace makes it harder to retain staff.

Reducing noise in the workplace is our passion and area of expertise, so we are very good at it. With our client focused approach, we are committed to achieving safe noise levels for employees.

We are proud of our company and the work that we do. With excellent service and competitive prices, we ensure our customers not only come back to us, but also recommend us to other companies.

We provide free no obligation quotes as every work place is unique with its size, number of employees and types of noise. However, from our online platform, we ensure we are the most competitively priced and excellent value for money.

Yes. We use both Sound Level Meters and Noise Dose Badges which meet the British standards and are calibrated by a UKAS-accredited calibration laboratory with certificates provided with each assessment.

The Noise at Work Regulations state the “employer shall ensure that risk from the exposure of his employees to noise is either eliminated at source or, where this is not reasonably practicable, reduced to as low a level as is reasonably practicable .. excluding the provision of personal hearing protectors“.

Yes. It’s not just the law, it’s also a false economy not to. Exposure to high levels of noise at work will lead to permanent hearing damage for employees. This can lead to prosecution of the employer by the Health and Safety Executive and costly compensation claims from employees.

Our consultants have an Acoustics related BSc Degree, Membership of the Institute of Acoustics (MIOA) and specific certificates for each acoustic discipline. Take a look at our About Us page to find out more.
