Free noise-level assessment available

Noise and hearing conservation is an issue in the heavy construction industry throughout the year. This can be seen in the rising number of work-related hearing loss claims. WORKSAFELY and other industry-based safety programs have been given a new opportunity to conduct noise level testing in their workplaces.

SafeWork Manitoba is pairing up with WORKSAFELY to use newly acquired dosimeters and noise level meters to conducted noise-level assessments. The testing is not part of any compliance measure on the part of Workplace Safety and Health and is to serve as an assessment and prevention measure. This service will be free of charge and results will be given to employers.

Equipment is limited and to be shared, so get your name in as soon as possible. If interested, please contact Phil McDaniel at 204-594-9059 or
