At Sound Solution Consultants (SSC) we understand when the workplace causes an occupational risk.

Our guidance aims to be first-rate, in accordance with The Health and Safety Executive guidance for employers “Noise Assessments – Getting what you need” . This includes:

  • Identification of those employees likely to be at risk of hearing damage
  • Daily L EP, d or weekly L EP, w personal noise exposure for those groups at or above the Lower Exposure Action Value (LEAV); including average and peak noise levels
  • Detail of noise levels used to calculate exposure assessment
    • Identify sources of noise giving rise to associated risk
    • SSC use a combination of hand held sound level meters and personal dosimetry
  • Indication of employer’s and employees’ legal duties relevant to calculated exposure levels
  • Simplification of existing and required noise control measures in management summary
  • Comment on existing noise control measures and suggestions for priorities of controlling noise, where appropriate.
  • Hearing protection assessment
    • Calculation (BS EN 458) for relevant groups at or above the Exposure Limit Value (ELV) [or Upper Exposure Action Value (UEAV) if accounted for all other measures]
    • Suggestion of alternatives where currently used variants are inadequate
    • Determination of Hearing Protection zones and appropriate signage, where hearing protection is mandatory
  • Standard reporting text includes name of person responsible for the assessment, equipment used, activities assessed, photographs, annotated sketch plans, health surveillance appraisal, noise control solutions, advice on low-noise purchasing and a glossary of acoustic terms

What our clients say

Have worked with Sound Solution for the last 7 years and have found them to be very professional and excellent at their work. Always happy to provide me with advice pre and post purchasing new buildings and during development projects. We have worked on various scale of projects and so far have found nothing that phases them. The reports are well written, clear and easy to follow. A great asset to our extended team.

We have been working with Sound Solutions for a few years now, as they offer a professional and consistent service. They are always happy to respond to site-based questions and are quick to reply to emails and phone calls. It is reassuring to our clients that they provide both the specification prior to construction and test on completion.
