Subscription based noise management solutions for mine operators

Noise management circle: monitor, manage, predict and engageNoise management circle: monitor, manage, predict and engageManaging environmental impact is one of the mining industry's key concerns. Effective noise, vibration, dust and air quality management is a necessity around mining sites. The challenge for many mine operators is to grow operations while at the same time staying within acceptable limits - for noise often defined as only 5 dB above background levels.

Public perception of exceeded environmental levels can lead to complaints and constraints. Gathering reliable and detailed data and sharing it with communities allows stakeholders’ concerns to be addressed, and can prevent problems for the operators. Noise Sentinel Mining enables you to do that.

Mine environment managers must adopt a range of measures to manage noise, vibraton, dust or air quality effectively, by reducing impact and managing both perceptions and expectations. To add to the challenge it must also be done cost-efficiently, so you can focus on mining. Noise Sentinel Mining will help you achieve this.
