Noise and Dust Testing and Monitoring

Undertaking regular and consistent monitoring is paramount, so you can protect your workers from exposure to hazards and ensure you comply with permissible exposure limits.

Monitoring your work site for hazards and contaminants is vital to workplace safety. This lets you know the data, understand what you need to mitigate and decide what programs & controls you need. In addition, identifying hazardous exposure in your workplace leads to a safer work environment and supports your overall occupational safety program.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standard 29 CFR 1910.95 is the federal regulation for occupational noise exposure. And OSHA’s Respirable Crystalline Silica regulations are 29 CFR 1926.1153 and 29 CFR 1910.1053.

The Mine Safety Health Administration (MSHA) standard 30 CFR 62.110 is the federal regulation for occupational noise exposure. MSHA’s standard for exposure monitoring is 30 CFR 56.5002

Catamount Consulting can help protect your team from occupational exposures, including noise levels and airborne contaminants such as gases, vapors, dust, fumes, and other related risks.

Workplace Noise Surveys

Noise monitoring is foundational to any hearing conservation program to identify hazardous noise sources and measure employee exposure. A thorough noise study provides the necessary data to ensure your employees’ hearing is adequately protected and your safety program complies with mandatory hearing conservation regulations.

Why perform noise monitoring? 

  • Initial monitoring is required for new buildings, equipment, and process to establish the need for a hearing conservation program before employees being exposed to noise.
  • Change in production, process, or area controls (e.g., removing a wall that blocks noise from a group of employees)
  • Moving or replacement of equipment
  • Periodic or repeated monitoring will identify if employees should be in a hearing conservation program
  • Provides crucial information in the determination of work-relatedness if an employee has shown a shift in hearing on annual audiometric testing
  • Identify employees that do not meet the OSHA/MSHA criteria for inclusion and can be removed from the hearing conservation program. 

We can meet all your noise monitoring needs using the following instruments:

  • A sound level meter takes targeted area and process measurements. The readings will reveal how intense noise is in a particular area and helps identify operational noise levels from specific machines, tools, processes, and equipment.
  • A noise dosimeter is a small, wireless microphone worn by an employee to measure cumulative noise exposure during a workday. A dosimeter records daily noise levels and calculates a time-weighted average (TWA) exposure. Personal noise dosimetry is the most accurate and appropriate tool for measuring noise exposure of non-stationary employees with various tasks and work areas.

Reporting:

  • Written summary of our findings
  • Targeted sound level meter and personal noise dosimetry results
  • Outline federal regulation requirements
  • Best practice hearing conservation recommendations
  • Hearing protector assessment to ensure adequate employee protection (if applicable)

Air Sampling

Effective sampling strategies need proper planning to ensure the most comprehensive evaluation. Catamount has highly qualified industrial hygiene and lab partners to help you get the air quality data to make informed decisions on workers’ exposure and what programs and abatement strategies you need.

Read more

Why perform air sampling?

  • Initial or baseline sampling to ensure compliance with regulatory exposure standards
  • Substance-specific standards require that periodic sampling be performed regularly, such as monthly or quarterly.
  • Whenever there has been a production process, control, or personnel change, or when there is reason to suspect other change which may result in a new or additional exposure. (e.g., change in ventilation systems, isolation barriers)
  • Decide on proper personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • Assess the effectiveness of hazard controls

Air Sampling can identify:

  • A substance’s concentration over different time frames
  • The level of multiple substances in the air as a result of emissions from a single source or multiple sources
  • A substance’s concentration at a wide range of locations
  • Contaminants deposit in greatest quantities

We can meet all your facility needs:

  • Personal air sampling measures personal exposure to airborne hazards and shows how vulnerable specific job tasks may be. In personal air sampling, a worker often puts on wearable sampling equipment, usually over the area several inches from the face, and goes about a typical workday. The equipment captures a representative sample of particles the person encounters.

Reporting:

  • Summarized lab report findings
  • Sample data and exposure summary
  • Suggested air quality improvements
