ASSESSMENT OF NOISE LEVELS IN WORK AREAS AT THE

Noise exposure is prevalent in construction, foundries, agriculture, transport, industry and mining-related activities. The prevalence of NIHL has not changed much in the past two decades. Therefore, a hearing conservation programme is an important issue in the smelter as certain areas are denoted as noise

Noise Measurement Solutions for the Mining Industry

Noise from mining operations can affect both employees and the surrounding environment with the same noise sources contributing to both occupational and environmental noise. For occupational noise measurements, the Optimus Red sound level meters,the doseBadge® Noise Dosimeter or a Safety Manager’s Noise Kit would be ideal.

Summary Mining Industry Occupational Safety & Health

Noise is any unwanted sound that has the potential to interfere with communication and to damage people's hearing. Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) is a permanent impairment of hearing, resulting from exposure to excessive noise. NIHL is one of the most prevalent occupational injuries in the South African mining industry.

Managing noise in the coal industry to protect hearing

In the NSW coal mining industry, the noise hazards arising from equipment and processes leave workers exposed to risk. Despite legislation, improved conditions, training and education, NIHL has the highest incidence rate and the highest number of claims for occupational disease in the industry. For this reason, it is critical for mine owners and
