Industrial and Commercial Noise and Vibration Control

Public awareness and intolerance of noise in the workplace has increased over the past thirty years. Workplace noise can cause deafness, mask warning signals, interfere with communications, increase worker stress and reduce productivity. Excessive vibration can be harmful to tool and machine operators.

Industrial noise and vibration arises from a wide range of activities, processes, machines and tools. It is not necessarily confined to the workplace, and often contributes to environmental noise in areas surrounding the industrial plant.

The staff of Colin Gordon Associates are familiar with OSHA and other standards used to set limits on industrial noise. We are able to undertake detailed measurements to assess noise and vibration exposure and advise on methods of noise and vibration control.
