Experienced assessors

We've carried out hundreds of workplace noise assessments and know the tools, machinery and processes that place your staff most at risk.

Cutting-edge technology

Hazards come from how loud noise is and how long it lasts. Personal dose monitoring and static area measurements reveal the full risk picture.

Immediate noise reduction

Small changes make a big difference. Every assessment provides quick noise-cutting wins - from machinery screens to signage and PPE.

Forward-looking risk controls

We also minimise noise levels for the long term, with alternative processes, tasks and working practices that ensure ongoing compliance.
