QuietDose personal dosimeter from Howard Leight by Sperian (now part of Honeywell) has won the prestigious 2011 Product Innovation Award given by The British Safety Industry Federation (BSIF) at the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards Gala Dinner.
Presented during the Safety and Health Expo 2011, the award recognises new and innovative products that contribute to improvements in workplace occupational safety and health.
QuietDose personal dosimeters from Howard Leight are designed to measure and record a worker’s actual in-ear exposure to noise over an entire work shift.
The equipment personalises hearing conservation by providing precise, real-time noise dose data that allows both workers and management to make the best-informed hearing protection decisions.
Commenting on the recognition by the British safety industry, Ian Shepherd, National Product Sales Manager for Honeywell Safety Products in the UK says that the company is committed to providing a more holistic approach to occupational hearing loss prevention, and pursuing a preventive approach towards hearing conservation in the workplace.
QuietDose personal dosimeters inform employees and their managers in real-time about their accumulated noise dose exposure over the length of a shift, ensuring employer compliance with hearing safety regulations while eliminating any guesswork and reliance on assumptions.
QuietDose personal dosimeters use innovative in-ear dosimetry integrated into earplugs and earmuffs to accurately measure every sound that reaches a worker’s eardrum, with or without hearing protection unlike competing devices that can only measure ambient noise.
The QuietDose provides safety managers with comprehensive personalised data to help them create customised and effective Hearing Conservation Programs for each worker.
