Noise measurements require appropriate planning and methodology to ensure the representativeness of measurements, the accuracy of the results and their proper evaluation based on noise limit values in order to identify the suitable methods to reduce noise levels. It is important to design a specific noise measurement plan, depending on the type of noise source and its characteristics, the background noise and the purpose of the measurement.
Our team has extensive experience on designing and implementing noise measurements from a variety of sources including traffic noise, noise from highways, harbors, industries, heliports, noise from equipment and labor noise exposure. We have implemented more than 150 measurement projects aiming at legislative compliance, noise mapping, dealing individual complaints and noise reduction.
Our Scope of Accreditation includes the performance of environmental and health & safety noise measurements, ensuring representative and reliable results Environmental noise assessment is carried out following international standards (ISO 1996-1, ISO 1996-2:2017), which aim at estimating noise levels (Leq) and noise indicators (Lden and Lnight) in accordance to the requirements of the legislation (PD 1180/81, MD D7/A/12050/2223/2011, JMD 13586/724/2006, PD 455/1976). The measurement of employees’ exposure to noise is performed according to the international standards (EN ISO 9612:2009) and the legislative requirements (PD 149/2006, MD D7/Α/12050/2223/2011).
