Applications for the doseBadge® Noise Dosemeter
The original wireless noise dosimeter
The doseBadge is a unique solution to the needs of Industrial Hygienists, Safety Managers and anyone who needs to make noise measurement of employees.
There are many different applications where the doseBadge can be used and some of these are detailed below.
The measurement and control of occupational noise exposure
There are many situations where there is a need to accurately assess the risk of exposure to high noise levels and to continually monitor any employees who are exposed to potentially damaging noise.
Workers who move between different locations, or where their noise exposure pattern changes throughout the day are very difficult to assess using traditional methods.
Machinery or moving equipment can also present problems to those responsible for carrying out risk assessments and noise exposure measurements.
The doseBadge is the ideal tool to carry out these tasks as it has no cables, controls, displays or fragile external microphones.
Compliance with Noise at Work Regulations, Industrial Hygiene Standards and Occupational Noise Exposure Guidelines
The regulations used for occupational noise vary around the world with different exposure levels and calculation methods used.
The doseBadge can be setup to meet almost every Occupational or Industrial Hygiene noise measurement standard such as ISO85, ISO90, OSHA, MSHA, DOD, ACGIH (USA Standards) as well as the EU Physical Agents Directive and the 2005 Control of Noise at Work Regulations (UK).
And because the doseBadge is a Dual Channel dosemeter with data logging as standard, it can be programmed to measure two sets of noise data at the same time
Monitoring and recording of long term noise exposure
If employees have a noise exposure pattern that is not easily controlled or where the noise levels vary each day, using a noise dosemeter may be the only way to accurately measure and record the long term exposure.
Although exposure to high noise levels over a short time can result in temporary effects, it is the long term exposure which causes hearing damage and other physical effects.
Noise exposure measurements in Hazardous environments such as Oil Refineries, Petrochemical Plants and Underground Mines.
Noise exposure measurements in Hazardous environments such as Oil Refineries, Petrochemical Plants and Underground Mines
There are many environments where noise measurements must be made but where there is a risk of explosion, such as Oil Refineries, Petrochemical & Pharmaceutical Plants and Underground Mines.
In these environments, equipment must be certified as being Intrinsically Safe and the CR:110AIS version of the doseBadge carries IS (Intrinsic Safety) Certification to ATEX, EEx, IECEx, SIMTARS and MSHA.
