Occupational Noise Risk Assessment for a Garbage Service Depot

Duke Ismael

A study commissioned by City of Sydney has been undertaken by Benbow Environmental to assess the risks associated with the occupational noise exposure by operators working in a garbage service depot.  A noise sampling program was undertaken, involving the use of both personal and static noise dosimeters.  The assessment concluded with recommending that audiometric tests be conducted on employees to detect any possible degradation in order to instigate any immediate action if any negative results are detected.  A few engineered noise control measures have also been recommended.
