Chop saw work bench

It is often found that by carefully managing environmental issues and concerns, other areas of sensitivity are also tackled.

The issue of high noise levels should be regularly monitored and regulated.

By proactively dealing with site noise, this can also address other areas such as operative health and safety and community sensitivity.

The example below shows how methods can be taken to reduce noise levels when using machinery on site:

  • In a situation where a chop saw was required regularly, the site developed a cabinet at workbench height;
  • When using the saw, the cabinet encloses the action and eliminates flying sparks;
  • The cabinet also had sound proofing walls which reduced noise levels;
  • Two feed in windows to the sides allowed for the component passage with heavy duty flaps and an illumination light fitting;
  • The lower level of the cabinet is a lockable store for the chop saw when not in use.
