Solving High Noise Communication Problems in the Road Construction Industry
Why is Hearing Protection important for Workers in Road Construction Industry?
More than half a million road construction workers are exposed to potentially hazardous high noise levels, which is why you may need to implement road construction noise reduction and noise cancelation solutions. There are several factors that influence the noise level during road construction:
- The condition of the equipment being used.
- The type of equipment used.
- The environment/work area - Is the area partially enclosed or fully enclosed?
- Potential for multiple types of equipment running at the same time.
High Noise Levels in Road Construction Industry
Check the below chart to see the typical noise levels of some common construction equipment.
The Need for Road Workers to wear Hearing Protection Headsets or Earplugs
The severity of noise exposure can result in hearing damage or hearing loss for construction workers not wearing the proper road worker hearing protection. Also, the majority of workers in the Road Construction Industry have a critical requirement to communicate with other workers to avoid accidents.
Noise Cancelling & Communication Headsets for Road Construction Industry
Traditional hearing protection or road construction noise canceling headsets restrict the workers' ability to communicate. Sensear’s full range of Two-Way Radio and/or Bluetooth headsets are powered by its groundbreaking SENS high noise communication technology that elevates speech and suppresses dangerous background noise so workers can hear speech and stay protected in high noise environments.
Workers can have seamless face-to-face conversations with workers in the work area without screaming and can communicate clearly on their Two-Way Radio or Bluetooth enabled devices, all while protecting their hearing. Sensear is the perfect hearing protection solution for workers in Road Construction environments.
