Occupational Noise

Excess noise is a defined hazard in the HSWA, and the level of acceptability varies by both exposure time and volume. Noise can be harmful even at relatively low volumes (e.g. a hairdryer) when it’s incessant.

Property Risk NZ will assess the noise levels within noisy areas at your site (e.g. plant room, chiller room etc) to ensure they meet workplace exposure standards. Assessment includes a review of documentation and controls such as training and health monitoring records, PPE signage and noise reducing devices.

  • Measure on-site noise levels
  • Calculate ‘Equivalent Exposure’ if necessary
  • Review noise management systems and documentation
  • Reporting and recommendations

Frequently Asked Questions

We take our commitment to health and safety seriously. Our current professional memberships include the following:

Property Risk Sitewise Totika S365 NzismNzdaa

Yes, we can. Property Risk NZ measures CO₂, temperature and humidity, and we can provide a compliance report and risk mitigation recommendations based on the nature of work taking place. General fresh air CO₂ levels are around 400-600 ppm. If levels rise above 1000ppm you will start feeling flat and drowsy, and if you feel like this in your indoor environment it’s a good idea to get your CO₂ levels tested.

Property Risk NZ services the whole of New Zealand. We have offices in Auckland and Tauranga, but we have clients all across the country.

No, we’re consultants only. We advocate for you as our client. To avoid a ‘conflict of interest’ we make sure we have nothing to gain by finding compliance issues with your building. Being in the industry, however, we can source a range of competitive quotes from trustworthy contractors for any work that needs doing. We don’t receive ‘kickbacks’ for referrals or similar.

Our turnaround on most jobs is 1 to 2 weeks.

We can certainly take care of the whole process for you. If we find failings in your hazard mitigation, emergency or health and safety measures and documentation, we do everything from recommending changes, procuring contractors, overseeing alterations and writing up the documentation afterwards.
