The Intrinsically Safe doseBadge noise dosimeter is approved for use in hazardous and potentially explosive atmospheres. Kits can be hired for periods of 1 week or longer.
Particularly useful for people who move around in hazardous environments, the I.S. doseBadge kit contains two dosimeters, making it ideal for monitoring a larger number of people during the hire period.
Hire Kit Includes
Assessing a worker's noise exposure in a hazardous environment is often better carried out using noise dosimeters rather than following the worker round with a sound level meter.
The ATEX approved intrinsically safe noise kit includes two dosimeters, so you can monitor the noise exposure of two workers at the same time, without the need to make manual measurements.
The noise dosimeter mounts on the worker's clothing using either the crocodile clip (this is the usual way) or using pin mounts.
The best way is to leave it measuring for the full working shift, providing you with the noise exposure level, LEPd or TWA, as required by the noise at work regulations.
The doseBadge Noise Dosimeter is designed to measure a worker's noise exposure in line with the EU regulations and the HSE guidelines. This ATEX approved (intrinsically safe) version of the doseBadge is for use in hazardous and potentially explosive atmospheres.
This version of the doseBadge makes exactly the same measurements as the standard Industrial doseBadge.
Leave the doseBadge measuring for the full working shift...
While it is possible to measure the LAeq over a shorter period and then calculate the exposure (LEpd), when using a dosimeter it is better to leave it measuring for the full working shift. This saves doing the potentially complex noise exposure calculations and ensures you measure all relevant noise levels.
The measurements can be viewed on the Reader's built in graphic screen or they can be transferred to a computer for storage, analysis and reporting. The Reader can download a number of doseBadges before the measurements are transferred to a computer, so it is only necessary to carry the Reader on site.
