Take action to protect employees from hearing damage with Casella’s NoiseSafe
Casella, air sampling, noise and vibration specialist, has launched an advanced and reliable software package for its personal dosimeter (the dBadge2), NoiseSafe. When used alongside Casella’s dBadge2, it is the ideal tool for fast and efficient reporting and analysis of noise exposure levels.
In the UK, over one million employees are exposed to levels of noise at work, which puts them at risk of noise induced hearing loss (NIHL). In fact, last year 23,000 workers in the UK reported work-related hearing problems, with workers in the manufacturing, food and construction sectors most at risk due to noisy working conditions.
Casella’s NoiseSafe software saves the user time with its instantaneous reporting on an employee’s noise exposure levels. Linked to the dBadge2, the software downloads a typical eight-hour workplace recording in just a few seconds. Audio and motion can be analysed to determine if any of the data is erroneous, which can be quickly and easily removed from exposure data, giving confidence in the results.
Tim Turney, Technical Product Manager at Casella explains, “The new software is designed to make noise assessments easier for managers concerned with the health of their employees. The graphs and data produced can easily be customised depending on the user’s requirements, making reporting pain-free and quick.”
Casella’s NoiseSafe software is available with any purchase of the dBadge2 from April 2019. Casella is dedicated to reducing occupational health and environmental risks and supporting businesses with their monitoring and analysis needs.
