Acoustics 101: Introduction to Noise Management


Learn about the impacts of noise as an environmental factor and how it is assessed and managed in Canada

Have you ever been bothered by noise? Was it a neighbour’s radio? A freight train? A plane flying over? Road traffic? An industrial plant? There’s lots of noise out there, but noise is an often-misunderstood topic. Noise health effects and the influence it has on our day to day lives, well-being and the environment is a relatively unknown subject, but it is an increasingly important environmental consideration for development and operation of existing facilities and developments.

Noise is becoming increasingly linked to serious health effects. The World Health Organization (WHO) has listed environmental noise as the second largest environmental factor leading to a disease burden, second only to Air Quality. Increasing awareness of the importance of protecting against noise is key to giving it more prominence in the Canadian environmental sector.

In this webinar, Dan Clayton from SLR Consulting will be presenting an introduction to noise management, providing a jargon free insight on assessment types in Canada, health effects and noise control measures.

This webinar will cover:

  1. Awareness of what noise is and how it is assessed in Canada
  2. Health effects of noise
  3. Typical noise control measures and best practice
  4. Types of noise source
  5. Seriousness of noise as an environmental factor

This includes onshore and offshore oil and gas including drilling, transmission, refining and distribution; mining (precious metals, energy resources and construction minerals/aggregates); architectural acoustics for commercial, recording studios, performance and entertainment spaces, healthcare, educational and residential; transportation sound and vibration for airports, heliports, rail, sea and road; power, distribution and energy resource enrichment including oil and gas, coal, nuclear and renewables (wind, solar, hydro); large scale construction and demolition; government body noise mapping; occupational health sound and vibration assessments; and defense/military support.

Dan is an advocate for increasing the public’s awareness of noise and vibration and the importance of considering them as a major environmental factor with increasing links to serious health effects.
