We carry out occupational noise at work assessments in accordance with the requirements of the EU Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005, to establish both employees' exposure to potentially damaging noise sources and employers' responsibilities to protect their work force.
Acoustic forensics tends to involve attempting to resolve legal issues by applying the principles of acoustics, using the relevant technology and procedures to aid investigations. One example could be undertaking experiments and calculations to determine ‘whether that person could have clearly heard that being said over there in that environment’.
Our long standing involvement with the Robust Details programme, for which we provide inspection and test services, and our development work with a number of builders trying new constructions and systems has helped us to build up an enviable database of test data and site experience. We can assess, analyse, review, predict and test as well as just give a gut feel indication as to whether something is likely to work or not.
