What exactly is a Workplace Noise Assessment or Noise Survey?
The terms noise assessment, noise survey, workplace noise testing, occupational noise assessment and workplace noise assessment are all interchangeable. To put them simply a noise assessment is the process of having a professional attend your business and measure the noise levels generated throughout your operations.
Each occupational noise assessment is different to the one before it as each business is unique. An assessor will attend your business and using equipment as specified in the Australia Standard for Occupational Noise Management will measure noise generated from machinery, tools and the environment from which your employee’s work within.
The Assessor will provide you with a workplace noise assessment report and if you are a HIVE Noise Assessment client you will also receive a colour-coded noise map, compliance action plan and a full de-brief on your noise survey results.

A comprehensive noise survey will provide your business with the information it needs to either control your employee hazardous occupational noise exposure or to rest easy knowing that your workplace noise levels are within legal requirements.
When should I re-do my workplace noise assessment / noise survey?
As per the Australian Standard for Occupational Noise Management retesting of your occupational noise levels should be completed at a bare minimum of every 5 years or as workplace conditions change (new equipment is added, equipment is moved etc.).
We recommend workplace noise testing be completed every 2-3 years as the minor expense of the noise survey is completely insignificant in comparison to the cost of just 1 hearing loss Workers Compensation Claim.
