Managing Noise in Construction Sites

Event code: 45010


INTRODUCTION

Requirements of noise control and management in construction sites are stipulated by NEA and MOM through legislations. To ensure that construction works do not affect neighbouring residents and businesses, noise levels are to be continuously monitored in construction sites and kept within the permissible levels. Developers also require contractors to prepare and submit to them a Noise Management Plan which usually includes the baseline noise record, indicate the Noise Sensitive Receivers (NSRs) (such as hospitals, schools, etc.) and propose mitigation measures and public relation strategies to handle noise matters. Throughout the construction duration, contractors are required to implement all practicable measures while continuously monitoring the noise levels closely.


OBJECTIVE
This course will enable construction personnel who are managing the site to be aware of the relevant regulations, understand noise and its measurements, and noise control techniques so that they would be able to prepare and implement a good noise management plan and thus manage the expectations of the neighbourhood.
