Noise Survey

Noise is commonly measured in decibels (written as dB).For peak sound level measurement the C-weighting is used, expressed as dBC. Sound levels in terms of dBA have been in use in B.C. to describe occupational noise for about 30 years. However, with occupational noise, we are concerned with workers’ noise exposure.

Noise survey is getting increased attention over offshore and onshore. High noise level leads to hearing impairment, hypertension, ischemic heart disease, annoyance, and sleep disturbance. Changes in the immune system and birth defects have been attributed to noise exposure.

Solutions

Prepare and implement regulation for working in noise. Continues or Frequent measurement of noise in the manned space. Work space noise exposure monitoring.

Standards we follow

IMO Resolution A.468 (XII) code for noise levels onboard ships
ISO 2923for Acoustics – Measurement of noise onboard vessels
ABS Crew Habitability on Offshore Installations
DNV Comfort Class - Pt.5 Ch.1
ISO 11690

Effectiveness of Survey

 

Maintaining of healthy and safe working atmosphere comply with rules, standards and regulations Reduction of human error

“Noise must be recognized as a major threat to human being”
