Working in an industrial facility comes with many risks. Some of those risks can be mitigated, like exposure to high noise levels. Did you know that 22 million workers are exposed to damaging levels of high noise each year? Noise at 85 decibels or higher can cause hearing loss and can distract workers easier, which can lead to injuries or accidents. The best way to reduce noise in industrial facilities is by using industrial soundproofing curtains.
Soundproofing your business is vital to blocking out excess noise both from inside and outside your building. Soundproofing curtains are typically made of materials that absorb sound without bouncing it back. This will help prevent serious problems from occurring.
Some of the problems that result from high noise levels are:
- Hearing Loss
- Verbal Communication Impacted
- Decreased Productivity
Hearing loss in your employees is the main problem you want to avoid, as it can result in a worker’s compensation case. Protecting your employees is more important than getting your tasks accomplished. If your employees don’t feel safe in your business, they won’t want to come to work, which will slow your production down. High noise levels can also cause distractions, which could cause your employees to injure themselves or someone else. It could also lead to decreased productivity because your employees will avoid exposing themselves to the noise.
Verbal Communication Impacts
Another problem excess noise causes is impacted verbal communication. Reverberations from loud noises can cause vibrations make it difficult to communicate throughout a work space. This can result in costly miscommunications and slow down the workflow of the operation.
The best thing you can do for your employees, your business, and yourself is to install industrial soundproofing curtains in your facility.
