Monitoring noise pollution: warning light system

To ensure that noise levels do not exceed what is safe, site managers can introduce monitoring measures.

This can help to reduce disruption to the local community and ensure that the workforce are not exposed to dangerous noise levels.

Below is an example of how a site monitored its noise pollution:

  • A purpose made warning light system was introduced for the workforce;
  • This indicated when noise from operations reached safe/warning and excessive levels, created as a 110v tool;
  • A light column was connected to a microphone;
  • Normal noise level was set at green, as levels increased an orange light was used for a warning light while the red light was used when levels reached an excessive point;
  • The warning could be seen by those wearing PPE;
  • The warning system was used in risk areas around site.
