The doseBadge is a noise exposure meter that mounts on the worker's shoulder, monitoring the noise levels throughout the day.
The doseBadge makes all the measurements required by the European noise at work regulations and described in the HSE guidelines.
The doseBadge is small and light, with no cable or controls. The Reader unit is used to calibrate, start and stop measurements and display the results.
When measuring noise in the workplace, there are two options: a hand-held sound level meter or a noise dosemeter. A dosemeter (like the doseBadge) is the best option when workers are moving between locations, between different pieces of machinery, or are working in an area that makes it difficult or dangerous to follow them round with a sound level meter. In these cases, rather than making lots of spot measurements with a sound level meter and then calculating the worker's noise exposure (LEP,d or LEX,8hr), a dosemeter monitors for the full working shift and provides you with these parameters.
In order to meet with the regulations (such as the EU and UK noise at work regulations), a sound level meter or noise dosemeter must meet certain standards. The doseBadge meets the standards required by these regulations:
