The Noise at Work regulations state the type and grade of sound level meter that you should use and the measurements that should be taken. Although we have accurate meters at a lower cost, failure to meet these requirements will result in noise measurements that do not satisfy the regulations or the HSE guidelines. More...
Noise at work sound level meter
Personal sound exposure meter
The EU and UK regulations define the equipment needed to carry out a noise at work risk assessment and this rules out the use of a low cost sound level meter, like the NM102 or the CEL240. You need a calibrated Class 2 Integrating Sound Level Meter and you also need a Sound Level Calibrator. The meter we recommend above, order code CEL620A2-K at £1432.00 is the most cost effective option for noise at work assessments.
If you have applications other than noise at work then we have a large range of meters to satisfy. Maybe you need to measure environmental noise too, in which case a Class 1 sound level meter would be more suitable. Please visit our Catalogue for a full list of the meters we have on offer.
