What are the best solutions to measure noise in an office space?
Asked 3 months ago
Hi! Several employees have complained about the noise levels in our office space, and I want to find the best solution to measure the noise and identify the source of the problem. I've done some research, but I'm not sure which method or device would be best. It needs to be accurate, user-friendly, and cost-effective, so we can take appropriate action and improve the comfort and productivity of our employees. Any help is much appreciated!

The most common tool used to measure noise is a sound level meter. It gives you the intensity of sound in decibels.
For more accuracy, use a noise dosimeter. It’s a device worn by employees to measure individual exposure to noise over a period, letting you identify which employee is most affected by the noise levels.
To get to the source, use an acoustic camera- an advanced tool that can locate the noise source by creating a visual representation of sound waves.
