doseBadge for Measuring a Worker's Exposure to Noise
The doseBadge is a noise dosimeter that mounts on the worker's shoulder, monitoring the noise exposure throughout the working shift.
- Strong cast alloy case
- No wires to catch on machinery
- No controls that encourage tampering
- Simultaneous Lavg, TWA, Leq, LEP,d and Peak
- "A" frequency weighting with "C" weighting
- Rechargeable battery

doseBadge Noise Dosimeter
doseBadge system is the perfect solution for the measurement of
a worker's exposure to noise. The badge is small and light,
with no cable or controls (all control is via infra-red).
There is also a huge cost saving where multiple dosemeters are required.
As the doseBadge has no display or controls, the Reader unit is
used to calibrate, start and stop measurements and display the results.
kits contain charging units that charge all the doseBadges
at the same time.

doseBadge works, please visit the How
to Use the doseBadge page.
Why Use a Dosimeter?
When it comes to measuring noise in the workplace, there are two options: a hand-held sound level meter or a noise dosimeter. The dosemeter (like the doseBadge) is the best option when workers are moving between locations, between different pieces of machinery, or are working in an area that makes it difficult or dangerous to follow them round with a sound level meter. In these cases, rather than making lots of spot measurements with a sound level meter and then calculating the worker's noise exposure (TWA), a dosimeter monitors for the full working shift and provides you with these parameters.
If you need both a sound level meter and noise dosimeters then please have a look at our Combination Kits.
Regulations and Standards
The doseBadge can be used to measure a worker's exposure to noise
in most parts of the world. For use in the USA the doseBadge is
usually set to run in OSHA, MSHA, AICHE or ACGIH mode. For Europe
it is run in the ISO setting. The doseBadge has two channels, and
so can, for example, run in both OSHA and ISO 3dB at the same time.
The individual settings can be changed very easily to meet most
other regulations. Please visit the Regulations page for more information.
