Noise Pollution – What do You think it is?
According to the USA Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), over 20 million workers are exposed to noise that can be damaging while they’re working.
Each year, businesses pay millions of $ / dollars in penalties because they’re not protecting their employees from high decibel loud noises.
In industrial environments, noise monitoring can be critical. Millions of dollars are spent every year on compensation for hearing loss disability.
Spider web labyrinth might help reduce noise pollution in the future according to this article. And airplane noise regulations mean planes should get quieter. Noise pollution is a big focus in Africa and India, even in ‘silence zones‘.
But how do you cost-effectively monitor noise today?
Is there a quick and easy way to install sound / noise monitoring devices and equipment?
Take a gander at the photos to see noise monitoring systems that use IoT devices to measure decibels. These solar powered systems send regular noise sensor measurements to Tools.Valarm.net for your database management, analytics, graphing, mapping, and alerting.
Since other factors can play into noise monitoring, these monitoring systems also measure:
- Wind Direction
- Precipitation & Rain Water Levels
- CH4 / Methane Gas for Air Quality
I’m happy to help you, your teams, and your organization deploy your most effective remote monitoring systems.
