3M noise monitor gives workers a safety call

19-01-2010

Workers can now protect their hearing with a new device from 3M that warns when noise levels reach danger levels.

The 3M Noise Indicator N1-100 alerts users to potentially dangerous noise levels, helping identify areas where hearing protection may need to be worn. 

Users simply clip the Noise Indicator to a shirt or jacket and its LED delivers a clear indication when noise levels exceed a potentially hazardous threshold.

The 3M Noise Indicator’s small size and lightweight design make it ideal for workers in a variety of industries. It has a rechargeable battery that operates for up to 200 hours.

The 3M N1-100 is an economical investment and effective training tool within a Noise Management Program (consult AS/NZS1259 series) and to help ensure workers know when and where to wear hearing protection.
