How do you find out how much noise is in your workplace?
The noise assessors listed below have been approved by the State Mining Engineer or the Chief Inspector of Mines, as competent to carry out noise assessments to AS/NZS 1269.1 : Occupational noise management - Measurement and assessment of noise immission and exposure. Others who may be competent to carry out this work can be found in the Yellow Pages telephone directory or online under the headings or searches 'Acoustical Consultants' and 'Occupational Health & Safety'.
They may be available, for a fee, to assist you to assess the noise in your workplace, to prepare assessment reports and to estimate the number of workers exposed above the exposure standard for noise. They may also be able to give some advice on strategies that may be used to reduce noise exposures.
For information on your legal obligations, see the Work Health and Safety Regulations, r. 57, and the Code of practice - Managing noise and preventing hearing loss at work.
From 31 March 2024, the WHS Regulations impose a duty on PCBUs to conduct audiometric testing (of a specific type) in relation to workers who are frequently required to use personal protective equipment to protect them from the risk of hearing loss associated with noise that exceeds the exposure standard. The PCBU who provides the personal protective equipment as a control measure must provide audiometric testing for the worker within 3 months of the worker commencing the work and in any event, at least every 2 years.
The Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety - WorkSafe is not responsible for the standard of service provided by any of those listed.
Persons are included solely on the basis of their letting the department know that they are available to do this work and that they have an approval as a noise officer.
