At POIRIERCASTRO HSE, we take your hearing conservation program very seriously and offer the most comprehensive services in the industry.
It all starts with a solid foundation and that consists of a Noise Exposure Assessment. This is essential in order to properly evaluate the noise levels in your workplace. Utilizing the most advanced equipment and standardized testing methodology recognized by ACGIH and AIHA, we provide you with a detailed report outlining areas for noise management and recommendations for appropriate hearing protection.
If you are unsure of what hearing protection to choose, we can provide your staff with custom molded ear plugs that guarantee a perfect fit each and every time while providing maximum protection.
In order to then quantify the effectiveness of your hearing conservation program, we can conduct audiometric hearing testing to ensure that your employees hearing is being maintained in good health.
If there is a significant hearing loss, our Hearing Instrument Specialist can suggest options for treatment and refer if necessary.
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.
