Noise protection plan

Excessive construction related noise can pose a serious health and safety risk if not monitored properly.

It is important to review working activity in order to measure noise levels, as prolonged exposure to high levels of noise can cause long-term health issues.

Measures should be taken to protect the workforce and surrounding public.

One company took extra steps to manage noise levels as shown below:

  • A noise protection action plan included the installation during works of a continuous noise monitor;
  • The monitor highlighted any breach via a traffic light warning system;
  • A text message was also sent directly to the client to advise a safety risk;
  • This system controls through day and night.
