Noise at Work compliance a ‘breeze’ with new sound meter
29 October 2013
With millions of workers still exposed to excessive noise levels around the world every day, noise experts, Pulsar Instruments are urging safety professionals to take action on excessive noise and its potential devastating effects on hearing with the help of the most talked about sound level meter in the industry, the Pulsar Nova®.
This new range of Class 1 and Class 2 decibel meters was entirely designed and manufactured in North Yorkshire and is proving a game changer in the industry. The Nova® was launched both nationally and internationally in recent weeks to help employers comply with The Control of Noise at Work regulations (2005) and protect their employees by monitoring levels of exposure to noise. This is particular important at a time when the HSE estimates that noise-induced hearing loss is the second most common reason for employers’ liability insurance claims made on occupational health grounds.
With its die cast aluminium outer case, unique ergonomic shape, use of latest digital technology, preamp with LEMO® connector, high resolution OLED display, ambient light sensor and illuminated silicon elastomer keypad, and an exceptional battery life of 30 hours, the Pulsar Nova® offers unbeatable durability, cost effectiveness and ease of use.
Noise measurements are captured and displayed clearly in 3 easy steps in all weather, terrains and working conditions. The data can be downloaded via the latest Pulsar Nova AnalyzerPlus software, and essential reports produced in just 3 clicks. It is simply the best decibel meter to measure noise accurately, export data instantly and achieve occupational compliance.
Sarah Brack says: ‘Pulsar Instruments have been developing world class noise measurement products for 45 years. This new range is no different. The Pulsar Nova® is truly an outstanding piece of equipment and an all-rounder for any professional seeking to achieve noise at work compliance. It has never been easier for employers to minimise the chances of temporary or permanent hearing damage.
