2013 Noise Benchmark Deadline Looms.
Are your Rock Drills meeting the DMR standards?
To all our valued clients,
By now you should be well aware of the noise level limits set out by the DMR. At the Mine Health and Safety Summit of 2003, the tripartite stakeholders in mining agreed to targets and milestones, which were aimed at amongst other things - reducing noise levels in the workplace. In line with improved safety in the workplace the following benchmarks were tabled:
“By December 2013, the total noise emitted by all equipment installed in any workplace must not exceed a sound pressure level of 110 dB (A) at any location in that workplace (including individual pieces of equipment)”.
For mine managers dealing with suppliers it is imperative that necessary measures are taken to meet the standards. In accordance with the requirements Tranter Rock Drills will no longer supply the unmuffled machines listed below – we will now be supplying the new range of muffled machines. This ensures you will meet the requirements set out above on time and avoid any unnecessary disruptions in production.
The changes are listed below:
