4 Types of Noise Monitoring Equipment for the Safety of On-field Workers

    When working in the field, workers are surrounded by heavy machinery and industrial activities that produce noise beyond 85 decibels. Prolonged exposure to these noises can lead to hearing difficulties and, in extreme cases, loss of hearing as well. 

    With site workers being exposed to loud noises for over 8 hours a day, supervisors and authorities must use noise monitoring equipment for the safety of field workers. Depending on the nature of the work, these noise monitoring equipment can be used to prevent noise-related accidents and injuries. 

    In this blog, we will discuss 4 noise monitoring equipment that can be used in workplaces. 

    4 Types of Noise Monitoring Equipment for Better Work Compliance 

    1. Noise Monitoring Terminal:

      A robust device that is designed to measure and assess noise levels in various environments. It is a central real-time platform for collecting, analysing, and transmitting data. The device helps ensure the site complies with noise regulations and workers are not exposed to harmful noise levels. 

    Key features include:

    • Ability to analyse noise data from different frequency bands
    • It helps in assessing the impact of different frequencies on human health
    • Supplements implementation of targeted noise mitigation measures
    • Continually stores and analyses data to ensure noise levels are in safe bandwidth
    1. Noise Loggers:

      A compact and portable device for measuring and recording environmental noise levels for a specified period. This device can accurately gather accurate data on noise pollution levels and assess the impact on nearby areas. 

    Key features include:

    • Programmable settings to measure noise over a certain period of time
    • Memory storage options for storing noise data
    • Real-time alerts for exceeding noise levels
    • Compatible with various other noise monitoring equipment
    • Expansive and versatile use 
    • The device is compact and versatile to be used in multiple locations.
    1. Environmental Noise Logger:

      Similar to a noise logger, this device can be used to measure noise levels in the environment. It has a sensitive microphone assembly that detects the slightest noise level variations. This device can be used for standard logging, event trigger, and interval recording. All recordings and data are stored in a .5G SD memory card. 
    1. Soundweb:

      It allows noise monitoring from the web and can be highly useful for permanent and semi-permanent locations. The setup is termed a true Remote Interrogation Noise Monitoring System. It allows for assessing and analysing real-time data, results, and audio events. Noise level measurements can be viewed from a remote computer system. 

    Key features include:

    • Suitable for compliance and licensing purposes
    • To record data for baseline studies
    • Record and export data in various time frames
    • For ongoing fixed noise profiling for mine sites, wind generator farms, and urban public venues 
    • Generate reports in PDF format.


    Workplace compliance is essential to safeguard workers from damages and injuries that can happen due to prolonged exposure to loud noises. These noise monitoring equipment help in constantly monitoring noise levels. As these devices are portable, they offer the convenience of easy set-up. Additionally, these devices can record data continuously or during a selected period of time. Their versatile application makes them ideal for on-site use. So, if the decibels within your workplace are too much, try considering noise monitoring equipment today!
