    Hello All,

    Those of you who operate moving plant. Have you undertaken noise testing over a work day for the operators?

    Almost!

    Back in the UK I have used a type 2 sound level meter to take a sample measurement of the noise to see if we did in fact have an issue. Luckily we didn't, as the noise peaked well below the 1st action level. (Even though no further action was needed the results still need to be recorded).

    Had there been an issue, I would have handed over to an occupational hygienist to carry out some more in depth monitoring, possibly using a dosimeter, to see what noise and frequency levels were present.

    Hope this helps a little.

    We recently conducted 5 yearly noise survey, forklift operator and a reach truck operator were fitted with dose meters and noise levels was well below 85db
