Sperian , a global specialist in personal protection equipment (PPE) now offers a new line of personal dosimeters to help prevent hearing loss in the workplace.
Howard Leight, a leading brand in hearing protection offers QuietDose personal dosimeters designed to measure and record a worker’s actual in-ear exposure to noise over an entire work shift.
QuietDose takes the guesswork out of hearing conservation for sound protection in all noise environments.
The QuietDose personalises hearing conservation by providing precise, real-time noise dose data that allows workers and management to make the smartest, best-informed hearing protection decisions.
Eliminating room for any guesswork or reliance on assumptions, QuietDose personal dosimeters ensure employees and their managers are informed in real-time about their accumulated noise dose exposure over the length of a shift.
Unlike competing devices that are limited to measuring ambient noise, QuietDose uses innovative in-ear dosimetry integrated into earplugs and earmuffs to accurately measure every sound that reaches a worker’s eardrum regardless of hearing protection.
Personal dosimeters monitor throughout the workday enabling workers to operate within safe noise levels. Real-time LED alerts warn workers when their noise dose approaches or exceeds safe limits so that they can remove themselves from harmful noise environments.
QuietDose functions as an essential noise measurement device as well as an important component of any hearing conservation program.
From the management’s perspective, the QuietDose analysis of each employee can be reviewed by managers so that employees who are at risk of Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) and Standard Threshold Shift can be trained in hearing loss protection and prevention strategies.
QuietDose also helps streamline worker deployment and may reduce the need to implement costly capital investments in equipment to reduce specific noise levels.
