Monitoring

Monitoring equipment for dust and noise.

RVT offer a range of personal and environmental monitoring equipment; designed to ensure that noise, dust and vibration levels remain within pre-defined limits.

Equipment Range

Monitor, Manage, Mitigate

A proven methodology, devised by the RVT Group, to ensure effective control of all on-site health hazards.

Challenge

Machinery such as breakers, pneumatic tools, generators and demolition equipment can easily breach the maximum noise levels defined by the HSE and/ or local councils. Site activities can also generate a lot of dust and vibration, especially when there is demolition work being undertaken. Contractors therefore need to measure noise, dust and vibration levels to ensure that they are not negatively impacting on those living or working nearby

Risk

Monitoring noise, dust and vibrations levels is the only way to prove to local authorities that you are remaining within the specified limits. Failure to prove that local authority restrictions/ regulatory requirements are being adhered to, could result in works being stopped until the contractor can prove that they have put adequate control measures in place.

Solution

RVT believe that there are three easy steps to achieve effective monitoring;

  1. Monitor - Identify the activities being undertaken and whether noise, dust or vibration could pose a risk to the individual or the wider environment.
  2. Manage - The HSE define maximum exposure limits over 8 hours, therefore handheld spot checks are not always suitable. Implement a continuous monitoring system and receive instant message alerts if pre-set parameters are exceeded.
  3. Mitigate - If readings are outside the upper limits, you need to install adequate control equipment, such as noise barriers or dust extraction units. RVT are always on hand to advise you which hazard control equipment will be most effective.
