Noise and vibration monitoring overview

  • With the tightening of compliance requirements and the aging buildings and infrastructures, construction work such as blasting, trench excavation, tunnel digging, pile driving and drilling can generate large amounts of noise and vibration which must be controlled.
  • New technology such as server farms and medical laboratories are increasingly common and have specific requirements for vibration levels.
  • Projects near or in residential areas have to abide by strict rules for noise emission.
  • Workers in noisy environments require protection and monitoring of the sound levels they are exposed to.

Benefits of monitoring noise and vibration

  • Efficient vibration monitoring systems help prevent damage to private property by providing accurate measurements of vibration levels.
  • Monitoring vibration levels helps to protect sensitive equipment and infrastructure from excessive vibration.
  • Accurate noise and vibration data help managers and engineers to better manage their projects by letting them know how close to the legal thresholds their activities are.
  • It also protects project owners and contractors against complaints from residents and business owners in the vicinity of construction work.
