Noise at Work Assessment

Blue Acoustics was commissioned by Wells Cathedral to carry our a Noise at Work assessment for the main chorister at Wells Cathedral.

Though this may sound like an unusual request, the chorister was found to be subjected to surprisingly high noise levels from the various choir groups he mentored, including their world leading female choir.

Through dose badge application and octave band noise measurement we were able to provide a robust NAW2005 report with full hearing protection listing.

Following many assessments of waste disposal sites and metal forging factories this came as a welcomed break for us, and an opportunity to wear our best shoes 🙂
