Sites should always be looking for additional methods and approaches to increase the level of safety for their workforce.

Site safety can always be updated and made more efficient. Building methods/techniques are also always progressing and there will be new equipment being operated which also requires the necessary safety measures.

Noise on a construction site can vary depending on the work being carried out and also the location, it is also difficult to scale when the level of noise becomes a real safety hazard.

Below is an example of how Robertson overcame the risk of harmful noise levels:

  • Different areas of the workplace present different levels of hearing risk. Workers often prefer not to wear hearing protection. Enforcing policies on when hearing protection is required is an ongoing task for safety officers;
  • A small personal noise indicator that can be worn by operatives helps identify areas where noise protection may need to be worn;
  • The device alerts the user via a flashing LED light. A red flashing light indicates noise levels are above 85 dB(A) – hearing protection must be worn. A green flashing light indicates noise levels are below 85 dB(A) – hearing protection may be required if necessary.
