Environmental noise is defined as unwanted or harmful outdoor sound created by human activity, such as noise emitted by means of transport, road traffic, rail traffic, air traffic and industrial activity. Environmental noise is a pervasive environmental pollutant that leads to annoyance and can be perceived as stressful. The impacts on people reach from annoyance and sleep disturbance over direct impacts on the aural system, indirect physical impacts to cognitive impairments and psychological disorders. Noise impacts vary with exposure levels, time of day, sound source characteristics, peoples’ constitution, surrounding conditions and the cultural settings and may well change over time.

An environmental noise assessment may be as simple as taking some short-term 15 minute attended measurements at a single problem location, to multi location long-term continuous noise logging that could last a week, or a month at a time. Our acoustic consultants take the time to discern your problem and find the right solution.
Our highly experienced consultants can navigate the rules and regulations surrounding environmental noise. This includes understanding AS1055:2018 Acoustics – Description and Measurement of Environmental Noise, SEPP’s, Council By-laws, & ERA’s.
The Australian Standard sets out general procedures for the description and measurement of environmental noise, including repetitive impulsive noise. It defines the basic quantities to be used for the description of noise in community environments and provides basic procedures for the determination of these quantities. The Standard applies primarily to noise emitted from industrial, commercial and residential premises. It excludes the setting of environmental noise criteria. Such levels are set by regulations or organizational policies including those referenced above.
