Noise Hazard Icon

Noise

Sound insulation, sound barriers and noise enclosures.

Noise at work can lead to serious health risks for both your workers and the wider public. Excessive noise can make warnings harder to hear, interfere with communications and lead to a range of long-term medical conditions.

Equipment Range

Capture, Contain, Control.

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 HSE. Contractors, therefore, need to install noise barriers to ensure that they are not only protecting other works on-site but also protecting surrounding businesses and members of the public.

Risk

Failure to provide adequate noise control will not only land you in hot water with the HSE and local authorities, but negligence could also leave you open to lawsuits presented by those working or living within close proximity. Claims could arise for, hearing loss, tinnitus, disturbed sleep, mental health issues, impaired memory, reduced quality of life and loss of earning.

Solution

RVT believes that effective noise control can be managed in three easy steps:

  1. Capture the hazard - Position the acoustic barrier close to the noise source (fully enclosing it if possible) to maximise the acoustic shadow area.
  2. Contain the hazard - Block the line of sight by ensuring the noise barrier is seamless. You may wish to consider whether an enclosure would be more suitable for fully containing the noise.
  3. Control the hazard - Use high quality noise barriers, with high sound attenuation, to absorb excessive noise. Screening reflective surfaces like walls may also help to reduce noise bouncing the sound over the barriers.
