Noise Monitoring

Chronic noise exposure in the workplace can lead to employee hearing loss. Industries more likely to have chronic noise exposure include manufacturing, wholesale, construction and utilities. Harmful noise levels can occur in any industry where noise producing equipment or operations exist. A noise assessment is warranted when two people standing in a work environment have difficulty carrying on a conversation. Chubb's loss control professionals can conduct noise monitoring and compliance checks as well as assist in the development and implementation of a hearing conservation program.

OSHA regulations require companies to implement a Hearing Conservation Program where workers are exposed to a time weighted average noise level of  85dBA or higher over an 8 hour work shift. The elements of a Hearing Conservation program include:

  • Noise monitoring
  • Baseline and annual employee audiograms
  • Annual training
  • Recordkeeping
  • Engineering noise control efforts
  • Formal program development

Air Contaminant Monitoring

Air contaminant monitoring is conducted to determine employee exposure to harmful airborne substances, or to establish a baseline of the exposure. Air contaminant monitoring typically involves a comprehensive pre-assessment, including plant tour, meetings with specific personnel to acquire necessary exposure information, and review of Safety Data Sheets. Full shift, representative air contaminant monitoring is then conducted.

Indoor Air Quality Assessment

Should building occupants exhibit symptoms potentially related to indoor air quality such as headache, fatigue, dryness and nausea, an indoor air quality assessment may be warranted. These discomfort symptoms may relate to inadequate fresh air, but could also stem from personal health conditions or work factors.  Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) assessments assist you in identifying building-related air quality problems and resolutions. An IAQ assessment generally consists of a building walkthrough, review of accessible heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, conversations with occupants and air quality sampling and analysis.
