Using It

Noise at Work Assessment

Noise exposure in the workplace can be assessed using either a hand-held sound level meter or using a noise dosemeter mounted on the worker's shoulder.

With a hand-held sound level meter you measure the sound level at each location and use this with the length of time the workers spends there to calculate the exposure. With a noise dosemeter you measure for the full working shift and it provides you with the overall exposure value.

dBadge Noise Dosemeter

mounting the dbadge

The dBadge mounts on the worker's clothing using the clips provided.

Measuring close to the ear ensures that the noise levels measured truly show the worker's exposure levels, usually expressed as LEP,d or LEX,8h.

Noise at Work - Factory Noise Surveys

The dBadge noise dosemeter is intended for measuring sound levels in a relatively noisy factory environment.

  • Measuring a worker's Noise Exposure LEP,d
  • Monitoring roving workers
  • Confined spaces
  • Inside machinery cabs
  • Monitoring multiple workers at the same time


For sound level measurement in lower noise environments you should use a hand-held sound level meter. For longer term measurements these hand-held meters can be mounted on a tripod.

Suitable meters would be the CEL620B Class 2 Sound Level Meter or the CEL633C1 Class 1 Sound Level Meter.

1. Charge
Ensure dBadges are charged.

2. Calibrate
Use the Calibrator that is included and check the dosemeter function. This is a requirement of the regulations.

3. Start the Measurement
After mounting the dBadge on the worker's clothing the measurement can be started. This avoids creating false noise while fixing it to the clothing.

4. Stop the Measurement
At the end of the working day the measurement can be stopped. It is better to measure for the full shift so that the dBadge can calculate the exposure level, or LEP,d.

5. View the Results
The results of the measurement can be viewed immediately on the display. If you don't want to use the software you can note the results down manually.

6. Downloading and Reporting
The software is included with the kit. Once installed, you connect to each dBadge using the docking station, transfer the measurements to the computer and generate reports.
