Compliance with regulations
Noise Regulations [RD 286/2006] have a maximum noise limit to which workers can be exposed.
Excessive noise level:
1. Hinder communication and cause errors
2. Affect productivity.
3. Can lead to a reduction or total loss of hearing.
4. Trigger cardiac effects.
5. Create stress.
The ICR method not only measures interior noise levels but also quantifies their sources, while also proposing the solutions required to inhibit them. This method minimizes costs and maximises results by calculating a preferred solution with the least amount of changes possible, without interrupting any industrial processes and ensuring that productivity and efficiency remains high.
The ICR solution is based on three axes:
Applying our own innovative technology, we can measure a range of noise levels, whether from particular machines, entire production processes, or the general ambient environment.
With more than 20 years of experience, we can advise clients and provide solutions suited to their specific situational requirements. Our experience has often shown that:
Our experience allows us to say often:
–Workers ignore noise breaches, such as leaking compressors or poorly positioned heavy machinery.
-Protective measures, such as air discharge mufflers, are perceived as an irritation and not an aid.
–Those generating the noise are unaware of their effect – and therefore a noise level indicator can be a tool of profound and lasting change.
–Sound booths are rarely a solution, as working environments often require doors to be left open to facilitate movement and access
Without understanding the significance of noise levels and their effects, it can be difficult to engineer change and improve working practice. ICR always recommends training for personnel, as knowledge and responsibility are essential to achieve and maintain the required noise reduction objectives.
1. Allows you to comply with current legislation, avoiding costly overruns and production delays.
2. Protects the health of workers.
3. Increases productivity and reduces employee stress levels.
4. Improves communication in the workplace, thereby also increasing efficiency and minimising errors.
