NOISE EXPOSURE ASSESSMENTS are conducted by our Industrial Hygienist onsite at your facility throughout the full duration of the work shift. Noise dosimetry samples are taken along with sound level meter readings to determine personal noise exposure levels as well as ambient background and peak sound levels. This data is then analyzed, reported and signed off by our field hygienist, our environmental coordinator as well as our senior hygiene consultant. All results are audits for strict OH&S compliance.

Under the Alberta OH&S Code Part 16, employers are required to perform a noise assessment if noise levels exceed an average of 85 decibels over an 8-hour shift.
