Consultancy specialising in noise & vibration assessment and control


Welcome to Nam Acoustics

Nam Acoustics is a consultancy providing expert advice on noise and vibration. Our acoustics professional assesses noise and vibration levels, and provides expert advice on how to control noise and vibration emissions using best available technologies.

Occupational Noise Assessments

Many occupational noise assessment reports do not make recommendation on how to control noise using Best Available Technology (BAT). Our assessment protocol addresses the requirements of the Control of Noise at Work from Guide to the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work (General Application) Regulations. Our assessments provide information on noise control techniques, thus enabling clients to include recommendations in a noise reduction programme without exceeding excessive costs.

Environmental Noise Assessment

We provide environmental noise assessments to IPPC licenced clients. Environmental noise assessments are conducted in accordance with Guidance Note for Noise: Licence Applications, Surveys and Assessments in Relation to Scheduled Activities (NG4) published by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

To Enquire about Occupational or Environmental Noise Assessment

Hearing Conservation Training

Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) is one of the most common industrial diseases. Fact: NIHL is permanent; it is also 100% preventable!
We provide training and toolbox talks on how to prevent NIHL. We advise on the proper wearing of hearing PPE, the effectiveness and maintenance of hearing PPE to reduce the risk.

Noise Reduction Techniques, Including Fan Noise Control

Our service extends to the investigation of the source of problem noise. In the case where there is a history of noise complaints, we have the expertise to investigate the source of the noise, assess the noise with state-of-the-art instrumentation and noise-modelling software, and make recommendations to reduce noise levels from the source.
Industrial fans are a common source of noise complaints, particularly where low frequency tones are emitted. We have the expertise to assess the fan noise emissions and advise on appropriate technologies to reduce, or even eliminate the tonal noise component, without the need for silencers!

To Discuss Noise or Vibration Assessment Requirements

Hand-Arm and Whole-Body Vibration (HAV & WBV)

When operating powered hand tools the vibration levels emitted can cause stress and damage to the operator’s blood vessels. Blood supply can be reduced resulting in a condition known as Vibration White Finger (VBf). We provide pragmatic advice on HAV assessment and how to limit exposure to reduce the risks associated with HAV.
When operating heavy plant and machinery the driver runs the risk of being exposed to WBV. Examples of such machinery include off-road vehicles, trucks, construction plant and fork-lift trucks. Repeated exposure can result with the employee suffering from back pain. We provide a comprehensive assessment and advice service to reduce the risk and meet the regulation requirements.

Leisure and Entertainment Noise

Excessive noise associated with the leisure and entertainment industry can expose employees to the risk of noise induced hearing loss. We provide advice on the risks and how to protect your employees from exposure to high noise levels within this industry.

Have your entertainment premises assessed by Nam Acoustics.
