Noise in the workplace: a major challenge for companies

Noise is omnipresent in our daily lives. Unfortunately, it can have harmful effects on human health. In France, three million workers are exposed to excessive noise levels in the workplace. Hearing loss due to prolonged exposure to high noise levels can set in insidiously, often without you being aware of it. To prevent these risks, it is essential to carefully and proactively monitor the noise environment that surrounds us on a daily basis.

Generally speaking, at 80 dB and above, the danger threshold is considered to have been reached after 8 hours of noise exposure. Above 130 dB, any exposure to noise, even short-term, is considered highly harmful.

NEXELEC noise sensors measure the sound environment in interior spaces, helping to ensure the well-being of occupants.

To reduce noise pollution, it is useful to implement corrective measures:

  • Use quiet machines
  • Soundproof premises or buildings
  • Equip occupants with earplugs
  • Create isolated areas for noisy calls or machines.

NEXELEC noise and sound level sensors help reduce noise pollution in indoor spaces.

Noise is a constant feature of everyday life. But unfortunately, it can be harmful to humans. In France, 3 million employees are exposed to excessive noise levels in the workplace. Without realizing it, hearing loss can set in very quickly and lead to deafness.

To anticipate these risks, NEXELEC noise sensors help you keep an eye on the noise level around you on a daily basis, in a preventive manner.


Poor noise management will also have an impact on occupants’ concentration levels, influencing their alertness too. The impact is not only physical, but can also be psychological. Studies show that exposure to noise increases levels of the stress hormone cortisol. This can lead to increased anxiety, fatigue, depression and even sleep disturbance.

NEXELEC noise sensors enable you to effectively monitor the sound environment in indoor spaces.
