Compliance with noise pollution standards: how do you go about it as an organisation?

Tuesday September 21 2021

Does your organisation generate quite a lot of noise? Then, you should consider implementing industrial acoustic solutions proactively. 

If you fail to comply with the noise pollution standards, there is a strong possibility that you will incur sanctions if it turns out that the environment is affected by persistent noise nuisance. So, avoid a production shutdown or being fined because of complaints from neighbours. Below you will find our step-by-step approach on the best way to meet the standards. 

Noise pollution standards

1. Hire an acoustics engineering firm

The role of an acoustics consultancy engineering firm is to draw up a noise remediation plan tailored to your needs and wants. They provide acoustic advice based on expert observations and noise measurements that are conducted meticulously and sometimes over longer periods of time. 

Whether noise pollution limits are exceeded by some installations and machines, or by the level of freight traffic around your industrial site, an acoustics consultancy firm makes sure the specific noise sources that cause nuisance are identified. 

By involving a consultancy firm at the start of the process, you can rely on a detailed noise remediation plan that clearly maps out all the problem areas

2. DOX Noise Control’s advice and offering

As soon as you have obtained a noise remediation plan from the consultancy firm, DOX Noise Control can get to work and distil your organisation’s noise issues into practical solutions

These solutions can be beneficial not just for your employees, but also for the environment around your facilities. This often involves keeping both internal and environmental noise within limits. 

We will review the plan in consultation with you and make it as transparent as possible. Our acoustic experts conduct a thorough analysis in order to provide you with customised solutions right away.

DOX Noise Control matches practical solutions to the noise remediation plan. Here are a few: 

  • HVAC: condensers, cooling units, heat pumps or roof units;
  • Industrial processes: fans, compressors or motors that drive installations;
  • Facilities: total solutions such as soundproofing doors, sound-insulating housings, acoustic screens or additional sound insulation to ensure that the entire building has the right acoustics.

3. Implementation of the acoustic solutions

4. Be proactive!

It will always be more expensive and more difficult to implement soundproofing solutions in existing installations. That is why proactive action is so important: it saves you a lot of time, money and effort.

You should also keep in mind that a complete acoustic implementation process takes about three to four months. Another reason to make a decision in good time.
