The High Costs of Hearing Loss

Noise exposure is one of the most common health risk factors, and workers are exposed to sound pressure levels capable of producing hearing loss. Occupational noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) is a major compensable industrial disease and entails substantial economic costs.

Environmental Noise Monitoring

Noise may be simply defined as excessive or unwanted sound and occurs when it is deemed to be loud or unpleasant and/or it causes disturbance. There can often be a significant subjective response to noise, however, with many factors affecting the way humans react to it. For this reason alone, it becomes important to be able to objectively assess noise and to quantify and evaluate its potential impact as opposed to describing it subjectively, i.e. what did it sound like to you.

Handheld Hazards

Exposure to HAV can disrupt circulation to the hand and forearm and/or damage, nerves, tendons, muscles, bones and joints of the hand and arm. It can cause a range of conditions collectively known as hand–arm vibration syndrome (HAVS) and specific disorders such as carpal tunnel syndrome, ‘tennis elbow’ and ‘vibration white finger’.
