Why Emprocom?

We work with you to find practical solutions to noise risk so that you comfortably comply with legislation, at a time that suits you and your business, with a fast turn-around.

How can Emprocom help?

We can help you identify noise risks, equipment items, and/or job classifications needing a more detailed sound survey, as the noise levels may represent a hazard for the workers in the area.
Once the areas where potentially hazardous noise levels have been identified, we carry out a detailed Sound Level Survey.
One method focuses on determining the noise exposure for a person for each of the tasks carried out during the day. This method is referred to as personal noise sampling or personal noise dosimetry.

The other method involves determining the noise levels over a work area or around each particular machine, an area or machinery noise survey. As part of this, we can:

Identify noise levels for all machines and components operating at 80dB(A) or above.
Identify hearing protection areas.
Identify noisy equipment or processes and advise how to reduce noise levels (engineering controls to combat the hazard at source)
Create a sound contour map (noise mapping)
Frequency analysis assessment, so we can advise on the suitability of hearing protection

Why noise surveys are important

Hearing damage caused by exposure to noise at work is permanent and incurable.

Measuring noise levels and workers’ noise exposures is the most important part of a workplace hearing conservation and noise control program.

If an employee is exposed to a typical daily or weekly noise level that exceeds 80dB(A), an occupational noise survey and risk assessment must be undertaken to comply with the Regulations. If typical daily or weekly noise levels exceed 85dB(A), hearing protection must be provided to employees and other important factors must be considered, for example, health screening and hearing tests.

The Control of Noise at Work Regulations apply to all industry sectors in Great Britain. The aim of an occupational noise survey is to assess the amount of noise or sound to which employees are exposed while in the workplace.

Bev Robinson, Risk and Compliance Manager

We appointed Emprocom to act as our Health and Safety Consultants in 2017 after being disappointed with our previous consultant’s performance.

Emprocom has assisted us implementing new procedures and policies to help us fall in line with legislation and work more efficient and safe manner. We have also instructed the team to Produce the Construction Phase Plans needed for our contracts.

Emprocom is always very prompt at providing information requested by all of our managing team and is very thorough with his site audits in order to assist us in areas that may need addressing.

We could not speak highly enough of Emprocom and have already recommended their services to many of our sub-contractors.

Neil Hague, Managing Director

The team at Emprocom took the time to understand our business and working practices. From this understanding they have been able to help us implement risk management processes which enhance productivity. The bespoke paperwork such as machinery checklists and method statements ensure we are fully compliant with regulations and assist with equipment care. I would highly recommend this company.

Benjamin Jackson, Jackson Farms

I recently engaged the services of Emprocom to produce our health and safety procedures and safety induct all of our staff.

Having spent several years working for a food manufacturing company where health and safety was a major concern, I had shied away from this task thinking that it would be a daunting task.

Emprocom carried out all work efficiently, on time and at a very reasonable cost. The outcome was very pleasing. Emprocom produced one all-encompassing manual that was very easy to understand and easy to deliver to the staff and ensured we were compliant with health and safety legislation.

I am writing to thank you for the outstanding service you provided and I compliment you on a first class end product. Emprocom have gone the extra mile and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to all of my clients, associates and friends.

Andrew Smith, A G Smith & Co

Emprocom provides an excellent service, which is reliable and professional. They do the heavy lifting where our health and safety is concerned, taking the burden away from our busy team and delivering systems which are workable. The Emprocom team is great to work with and I would highly recommend them to other companies.

Alex Robinson, Terravesta

Emprocom have advised our company on Health and Safety matters since 2017 and we are very happy with their performance. In addition to being friendly and welcoming, all the team we have met or corresponded with have been very knowledgeable. They are effective in finding solutions to assist us in implementing efficient plans of action in line with safety standards and legislation.

We thank all the team

Fragrances- UK

We brought Emprocom on when I joined Tanvic Group four years ago and they have been fantastic to work with. They’ve made us focus on our compliance and making things as they should be.

They audit each of our depots every year and have made a big impact on many of the sites over the years. Their support has made me feel a lot more comfortable in my role, and I know if we have any requests for policy documents, they are sorted and only a click away.

We have robust policies in place and Emprocom always tries to give practical solutions to issues. They will look around, making tweaks to get it right without it being too onerous.
