• Applications of Noise Control in the Mining Industry
    Noise SourceNoise PathNoise ReceiverConclusionThere are three basic approaches to protecting the individual worker from hazardous noise exposure. First, we can address the source of the noise directly. This can be implemented at a number of different stages throughout the mining lifecycle. Noise should be a consideration early on and throughout the mining process, which means that it is imperative to ensure effective, considerate operational and administrative practices in tSee more on noisesolutions

  • Exposure & Control of Noise Australasian Mine Safety Journal

    Eliminating noise seems like an unlikely control in mining, but a simple example is as basic as identifying unnecessary noise sources that can be switched off when there is no need for them at a certain point of time in the production cycle. e.g. isolating air reticulation sections that aren’t in use. The use of compressed air is one of the most common sources of noise exposure and simple


    A further noise reduction was achieved by replacing the older Caterpillar 777 trucks with a fleet of five brand new Hitachi Al-1500 trucks. The 50-tonne Hitachi AH500s are smaller and quieter than the 90 tonne Caterpillar 777 trucks they have replaced, and are highly sought-after in the mining industry.
