One of the most important safety issue's the mining industry is facing is loud noise and how to control it. The new Noise Indicator Nl-100 from 3M Occupational Health and Environmental Safety alerts users to potentially dangerous noise levels, helping identify areas where hearing protection may need to be worn. Users simply clip the Noise Indicator to a shirt or jacket; it’s LED delivers a clear indication (red or green flashing LED) when noise levels exceed a potentially hazardous threshold.
The 3M Noise Indicator’s small size and lightweight design make it ideal for workers in a variety of industries. With a rechargeable battery that operates for up to 200 hours between charges, it’s an economical investment for use in an employee hearing awareness program.
The Nl-100 noise indicators can be used as an effective training tool within a Noise Management Program (consult AS/NZS1269 series) and to help ensure workers know when and where to wear hearing protection.
