Workplace Noise Survey


MEC's workplace noise monitoring service can identify those members of staff who are exposed to excessive noise.  We work with you to tackle potential and associated health hazards so you can make informed decisions as to what measures you may need to introduce in order to control and minimise employee exposure. 


Our pre-site visit service helps determine your key aims and objectives and ensures you receive a competitive quote. We conduct an on-site noise survey to determine daily exposures and, if necessary, provide you with recommendations of appropriate control measures and identify where improvements can be made.

Excessive, unmanaged occupational workplace noise exposure will lead to workers who are less productive and more likely to suffer long term health effects. If your employees are exposed to loud machinery on a regular basis or must raise their voices to carry out a normal conversation for at least part of the day then they could be at risk. Noise-induced hearing loss is the most commonly reported occupational disease in Europe.


MEC works with employees and employers to help you understand the risks and to control and minimise them, which in turn promotes:  

  • Improved worker health and increased life expectancy,

  • Reduction in the number of people who leave employment early through injury or illness,

  • Lower social and health care costs as well as maximising worker potential and wellbeing,

  • More efficient working processes with technological improvements and increased productivity,

  • Confidence you are working with a trusted, independent compliance partner.


A workplace noise survey helps you fulfil your legal duty of protecting employees from noise under the Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005.​

What does a noise survey involve?

  • Measurements of noise using a sound level meter to highlight sources of significant noise

  • Use of noise dosimeters worn by workers to measure personal sound exposure

  • Noise mapping to help identify hearing protection zones

  • Octave band frequency analysis to aid in the selection of hearing protection

  • A detailed noise survey report, with noise control solutions to help develop an action plan as part of your risk assessment process

MEC's expertise in recognising workplace health hazards and evaluating the magnitude of exposure means we can guarantee proportionate advice on how to control workplace health risks. Our key objective when supporting our customer is to assist in safeguarding employee health, ensuring your business remains productive as well as helping you maintain compliance with relevant regulations and guidance.
