Less noise in the bottling hall
Hardness of hearing relating to noise is the most common occupational disease. 6,000 incidents every year in Germany alone speak for themselves. Therefore plans and strategies for effective noise protection were at the centre of the exchange of experiences between HEUFT SYSTEMTECHNIK GMBH and the "Berufsgenossenschaft Nahrungsmittel und Gaststätten (BGN)", the German Employer´s Liability Insurance Association for the Food and Catering Industry. Innovative solutions which reduce the noise level in the bottling hall with lasting effect and at the same time increase efficiency convinced the occupational safety and prevention experts of the HEUFT know-how.
It is the main task of the BGN, as the responsible body for legal accident insurance for beverage and bottling industry companies, to prevent occupational health hazards. This is particularly true as regards noise protection. "The greatest noise reduction effect is achieved during the design phase of a machine" explained Thomas Fritsch the BGN noise protection expert at the meeting with the representatives from HEUFT in Mannheim, Germany. On average this effect is already 60 percent of the total which can be achieved. Therefore Mr Fritsch advises food and drink producers to invest in devices which are up-to-date as regards sound emission and which comply with legal requirements. Because stricter limits will apply in the EU as from the end of the year. The new machinery directive 2006/42/EG which comes into effect on 29 December stipulates that the airborne noise emission value of machines must not exceed 80 dB (A). The maximum was 85 dB (A) until now.
