Otospro specializes in noise measurements and conformity assessment related
to the limits set by the current regulations and technical specifications.
Instruments’ technical characteristics and the
possibility of monitoring with several sound level meters allow us to detection
plants and infrastructures’ noise.
Time, statistical, frequency and acoustic propagation analyses with
audio recordings improve the recognition of sound sources.
Acoustic and anemometric measurements of wind turbines
The use of sound level meters and anemometers
operating in synchronous mode allows to characterize the acoustic impact of
wind turbines in relation to wind speed and direction, allowing the comparison
before and after the operation in homogeneous conditions.
Continuous monitoring with alerts when agreed
The measuring units allow continuous monitoring of sound levels and
automatic sending of alerts/visual warnings when set sound thresholds are
exceeded. The foreman can then identify the type of noisy activity and
intervene to mitigate it. The monitoring system can be associated with dynamic
activity control systems and a weather station to report critical propagation
Measures in the working environment
Surveys in workplace allow the identification of the
activities and facilities that most contribute to the determination of the operators’
exposure’s levels. The assessments are conducted in accordance with the
provisions of Legislative Decree 81/2008 and the guidelines prepared by the
control bodies and include the calculation of 'suitability of PPE.
The skills and experience acquired in the design of
noise mitigation interventions allow the preparation of an effective corporate
program to reduce noise exposure (PARE).
Identification and characterization of disturbing
Through an evaluation process that first involves
simpler methods and only then more complex protocols, we can identify all the
sound sources that determine the exceeding limits.
Testing and conformity assessment related to limits, specifications
and certification of machines and equipment
The accurate verification of the acoustic performance
allows manufacturers and users to avoid that the sound contribution of new
systems determines the exceeding of the limits provided by law and purchase
specifications. Machineries/equipment’s certification is carried out according
to national and international standards.
