Sperian (now part of Honeywell) announces that the QuietDose by Howard Leight has won the prestigious 2011 Product Innovation Award from the British Safety Industry Federation (BSIF) at the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards Gala Dinner.
Presented during the Safety and Health Expo 2011, the award recognises new and innovative products, which contribute to improvements in workplace occupational safety and health.
QuietDose by Howard Leight is a line of personal dosimeters that measures and records a worker’s actual in-ear exposure to noise over an entire work shift. The personal dosimeters personalise hearing conservation by providing precise, real-time noise dose data that allows both workers and management to make the smartest, best-informed hearing protection decisions.
Commenting on the award, Ian Shepherd, National Product Sales Manager for Honeywell Safety Products in the UK says that the company is committed to providing a more holistic approach to occupational hearing loss prevention while pursuing a more deterministic and preventive approach towards hearing conservation in the workplace.
The award-winning QuietDose takes the guesswork out of hearing conservation for sound protection in all noise environments.
The QuietDose personal dosimeters inform employees and their managers in real-time about their accumulated noise dose exposure over the length of a shift, ensuring employer compliance with hearing safety regulations.
Superior to competitive models that only measure 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 whether the worker is wearing hearing protection.
The QuietDose personal dosimeters provide safety managers with detailed personalised noise exposure data to create highly customised and effective Hearing Conservation Programs for each worker.
