Contrast it or do both
Sometimes louder isn’t always better! So how do you overcome high ambient noise to send your workers an audible message?
In which areas can you use a general plant signal that overcomes existing dB levels? In which areas do you need a contrasting sound for a general warning?
And remember, in some high noise areas, the audible signal needs to be both louder and contrasting in order for it to convey the warning message you are trying to get across.
For example, to signal evacuation, a conventional siren sound may be loud enough to overcome high noise. However, sometimes a sound dissimilar from that of the surroundings, even though perhaps not much louder, may contrast the area’s noise well enough to cut through…. thus making it a good choice for telling people to “shut down and take cover”, anywhere in your plant.
In short, you don’t always need to be above the ambient noise to effectively convey a warning message, sometimes a contrasting sound will do.
