OSHA's site says "Twenty-two million workers are exposed to potentially damaging noise at work each year. Last year, U.S. business paid more than $1.5 million in penalties for not protecting workers from noise.
While it's impossible to put a number to the human toll of hearing loss, an estimated $242 million is spent annually on workers' compensation for hearing loss disability.
Each of the elements below is critical to understand in order to ensure that workers are being protected where noise levels are unable to be reduced below the OSHA required levels."
By having an accurate noise exposure maps available, will help prevent initial occupational hearing loss, preserve and protect remaining hearing, and equip workers with the knowledge and hearing protection devices necessary to safeguard themselves in the affected areas.
The Noise Exposure canvas in the data collection software allows the user to import a DXF file, presumably a plot plan or floor plan, or the user can import an image; such as an image from google earth to use as the background. Once imported the user can add the boundary lines of the measured noise dBA's to a specific layer on top of the import document. The boundaries can be easily modified if changes arise, making this one of simplest noise exposure maps on the market.
The boundary lines function the same as the P&ID data collection graphics allowing the user to import photos or documents, allowing all to view or print. Data collection has never been this easy.
As you can see the software puts everything together into one place.
