Mining can be a precarious business. Extracting resources is usually a colossal undertaking, often involving the alteration of entire landscapes, and, as such, it requires due preparation for the assessment and mitigation of any hazards that are expected to arise. Noise is one of those inevitable hazards found on a mine site, and is responsible for a host of complications, including the deterioration of worker hearing and the disruption of entire communities.Read more →
Echo Barriers are robust portable acoustic barriers capable of withstanding long term use in harsh outdoor environments such as construction and demolition sites, festivals, oil & gas, roadworks, and others. Wherever there are challenging noise issues, over both the short term and the long term, Echo Barriers provide the perfect solution, with their modular design facilitating the installation and removal of a portable noise reduction system.Read more →
Echo Barriers are implemented across a range of worksites, events, and other loud commercial environments in places all around the world, mitigating the impact of noise. These portable noise barriers are unique in their ability to both significantly reduce noise and its subsequent harmful effects and be highly manageable in mounting, rearranging, and uninstalling. They are also uniquely durable, withstanding exposure to weather, the outdoors, and tough work environments. Correct storage of Echo Barriers not only facilitates their re-deployment but also ensures their longevity, extending their effective usability well beyond the point of profitability and cost-effectiveness.
Generators are far from the loudest piece of equipment going around; however, they do tend to run most incessantly, producing noise over periods of days at a time with the likelihood of disrupting nearby residents and the general public. Given their typical use, they are also often left in close vicinity to sidewalks and public areas such as during events and on construction sites.Read more →
Just like other worksite hazards and health risks such as spills, chemical exposure, falls, heat and radiation exposure, and physical strain, it is necessary to address noise exposure risks for employee safety and legal responsibility. This is what can be done to reduce noise hazards on a worksite.Read more →
Echo Barrier's noise control system provides mitigation of noise around a site perimeter, preventing it from spilling into the public and wider community.
But what about from smaller, more isolated tasks? Maybe your site covers only a limited surface area, or your team's work stations are emitting noise across the entire jobsite, placing everyone at risk of prolonged noise exposure. In this case, erecting temporary fencing and deploying barriers around the entire perimeter, might be excessive.
