Noise Reduction for Compressors & Diesel Machines on Construction Sites
Using the correct diesel powered pump and compressor noise reduction methods for your construction site is crucial to maintaining your workplace health and safety.
21st December 2022
Ensuring the correct diesel powered pump, generator and compressor noise reduction measures for your construction site is crucial. While we obviously can’t avoid making noise on worksites, there are ways to minimise it to ensure the health and safety of your workers and the greater public. Keep scrolling to learn how.
Why is noise control on construction sites so important?
Research revealed that from 2012-2015, 17% of construction workers lodged compensation claims for Noise Induced Hearing Loss.
As a type of neighbourhood noise pollution, excessive construction noise can lead to severe health and safety issues. Noise levels that reach over 80dB are considered hazardous and can result in the following:
Permanent hearing loss or damage.
Debilitating anxiety, depression, or fatigue.
Miscommunication on construction sites, which can lead to serious safety or legal events.
Noise complaints or infringements from nearby businesses and residents.
Some diesel equipment can reach 100dB or more, so it’s vital that you implement proven compressor noise reduction measures on-site to protect your workers and the wider community.
