Occupational Noise Assessment
Don’t let excessive noise
become a deafening problem
No matter what size your workplace is or what activities are carried out there, excessive noise can be a major issue leading to hearing loss. If a noise is continuous and intrusive, if employees need to raise their voices to speak to each other or if workers use noisy power tools or machinery then noise could be a safety hazard at your workplace.
OHS/WHS regulations require you to assess and control the risk of noise induced hearing loss and to monitor it at a minimum of every five years once a noise risk is identified. Our Occupational Noise Assessment will help you to ensure the health and safety of your employees exposed to noise by determining how loud the noise is and how long they are exposed to it by using the latest noise monitoring equipment. The assessment will use noise measurement to provide information on the risks and an action plan for controlling the noise.
JTA Noise employs the use of dosimetry as standard for all occupational noise assessments. This ensures a more accurate result when determining noise exposure over a period of time, rather than basing assessments on assumptions of exposure.

Once identified, noise risks can often be controlled with simple measures such as:
JTA Noise has conducted thousands of noise assessments Australia wide, ranging from owner-occupied small businesses to large multi-nationals. Sites assessed through noise monitoring include mines, quarries, construction sites, distribution centres, packing halls, food manufacturing, engineering/fabrication, maintenance/workshops, major hazard facilities, printing halls, road works and slaughterhouses.
JTA’s team of acoustic consultants service all Australian cities including Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Darwin and Hobart, also now servicing New Zealand.

Thank you for conducting the WorkHealth Checks. It was a very worthwhile process and staff appreciated the fact that we translated into real action, a free health and well-being service and initiative that showed care for their welfare.
Glenhuntly Primary School
The Noise Awareness Training was an eye opener. The presenter showed us great tricks on how to wear our PPE properly, explaining that hearing loss is serious and irreversible, causing other health issues. We really enjoyed it, and already see a positive workplace behaviour change.
