Prevention is better than cure

Brüel & Kjær launches wireless, lightweight, personal noise-dose meter

As noise-induced hearing loss is one of the most prevailing and costly occupational health problems, Brüel & Kjær has launched a portable noise-dose meter that assesses work environments before the damage is done.

Millions of workers are at risk from repeat exposure to high noise levels. Once the damage is done, social and psychological handicaps can lead to potentially massive expenses from the loss of skilled labour, early retirement and worker compensation.

Brüel & Kjær’s Noise Dose Meter Type 4448 is shoulder-mounted and cable-free. It has been designed to accompany employees throughout their working day, measuring and registering all relevant data about their noise exposure.

Type 4448 can be used to assess the risk of hearing damage to workers in noisy environments such as machinery workshops, forestry sites and music venues.

Special versions are available for use in hazardous areas, such as mining and petrochemical facilities, where only certified equipment can be legally used.

Type 4448 is part of Brüel & Kjær’s wide range of solutions for assessing noise and vibration exposure in the workplace.
