New SoundPLANmanda software helps easily analyze harmful workplace emissions

Workplaces seeking to measure harmful noise emissions can now map and analyze the levels using new, state-of-the-art software, SoundPLANmanda. Developed by innovative software and engineering company, SoundPLAN, it’s the perfect tool for occupational health and safety experts to help them assess environmental hazards.

The measurement data can be easily imported to instantaneously display a color-coded map with contour lines representing the measurement value all over the mapping area, using SoundPLANmanda’s intelligent and fast interpolation algorithms. The results are shown in easy-to-use map layouts, with multiple options to adapt to user requirements, making the process as simple as possible.

Versatile tool

Projects can be combined with background maps or floor plans and the software can be used to obtain measurement values in a range of workplaces, including offices, factories and industrial sites.

Data is clearly structured with the ability to have multiple mapping areas, such as different floors. Several measurements can be combined to show, for example, the level change.

Scale of workplace risk

According to the World Health Organization’s 2021 ‘World Report on Hearing,’ approximately 16% of hearing loss in adults worldwide results from exposure to excessive noise in the workplace. Although the employer must determine whether workers are exposed to excessive noise, in line with regulatory requirements, and whether preventive measures need to be taken, often levels in industrial workplaces are not kept as low as required. If noise limits are exceeded, hearing protection should be introduced, and other steps taken to minimize it.

To protect people, health and safety regulations and international and country specific noise rules must be adhered, and the software’s evaluation is based on these workplace standards. This includes the USA’s Occupational Health and Safety Act, (OSHA), The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), and the European framework directive 89/391/EEC for occupational safety and health (OSH). The software results are documented in a well-structured report, with all required information and assessment.

The software can also be used to measure temperature and air pollution in the workplace.
