Noise Control for Hoist Operators

On construction sites there are many different noise sources, and the construction industry is a high risk for noise related ill health.

For hoist operators, one of the major noise sources is the impact noise when opening and closing hoist doors and lifting or lowering the ramp.

By retrofitting parts of the hoist such as the chains and ramp with dampening materials they achieved an 18-decibel reduction in impact noise, bringing noise levels below 85 dB(A).

This reduction benefits not just the hoist operator, but other hoist users and contractors in the vicinity.

It also means they are not only relying on PPE to achieve a safe working environment.
