Quartec offers a wide range of acoustic services for industry, public bodies and private customers. We offer services tailored to customer needs to ensure compliance with current regulations and standards. We will advise you on how to best apply noise management and mitigation measures to ensure protection of your employees and public. Our occupational and environmental noise reports are suited to our customers needs and are designed as working documents enabling you to effectively implement actions to manage risk as cost-effectively as practicable.
All employers have obligations under the Health & Safety at Work etc Act, which includes compliance with the Noise at Work Regulations.

We actively cooperate with our customers in noise exposure management by creation and implementation of hearing protection programs.
