Noise control in the workplace is more than just a good idea.
Factories, mills, industrial facilities and manufacturing plants can be extremely noisy environments. Employees exposed to constant high noise levels will experience fatigue that can lead to an increased risk of hearing loss, workplace injury, and lower productivity. Extremely loud environments can be very dangerous and lead to accident and injury when employees can't effectively communicate with one another. For overall employee health and safety, OSHA has the following guideline in place:
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA's) Noise standard (29 CFR 1910.95) requires employers to have a hearing conservation program in place if workers are exposed to a time-weighted average (TWA) noise level of 85 decibels (dBA) or higher over an 8-hour work shift.
Although it can seem like a daunting task to put noise-control solutions in place in an industrial or manufacturing facility, rest assured we have several ways to achieve a less noise-intensive environment. We can use wall panels and baffles to dampen and absorb the noise in certain areas. We can close off areas to trap the noise inside and reduce its impact on the space as a whole. We can treat the ceilings and walls to absorb the sound where needed. You've got plenty of options, and our vast experience means that we are experts at treating facilities of all types. Best of all, the Snap-Tex system that we use is extremely durable. This makes it the perfect choice for industrial applications.
By acoustically treating your workplace, you can effectively become more OSHA compliant, reduce the burden on your employees, improve health and safety in the workplace, raise your safety rating and even lower your liability insurance costs. That sounds like a win-win for everyone. Contact us today to learn more.
