Use a sound level meter to make quick and accurate spot-checks of the noise levels. A hand-held meter is ideal when people are only working at a few fixed locations - you measure at each and calculate the exposure as a Time Weighted Average. When the noise levels are particularly high a more advanced meter should be used to assess the level at the ear when wearing hearing protectors. The greatest benefit when using a sound level meter rather than a dosemeter is that you are present when the noise occurs, so you can assess if the sound levels are representative of normal operations.
Standard Combination Kits
We can create many combinations of sound level meter and dosimeter but the following are the most popular, covering most applications. Otherwise, you can create your own kit using our Custom Combination Kit tool.
