Noise

EIS Consulting can address your noise exposure concerns. We utilize sound level meters and dosimeters to characterize workplace noise. Assessments are performed to evaluate compliance with OSHA's action limit of 85 dBA and permissible exposure limit of 90 dBA. Where noise exposures exceed 90 dBA on a time-weighted-average (TWA), OSHA requires that companies implement engineering controls to reduce the noise levels, rather than solely rely on hearing protection devices to protect workers. We can assist your company in identifying and evaluating noise control options for a quieter workplace.

We can also assist in the development or auditing of audiometric testing programs which are mandated if workers are exposed to 85 dBA TWA or greater.

Other types of services we can provide include:

  • Noise Dosimetry Sampling Planning and Implementation
  • Equipment Pre-Purchase / Pre-Installation Calculations of Anticipated Noise Changes
  • Adequacy of Hearing Protection Devices
