A mobile electrical contractor company had a small maintenance workshop in which the pedestal grinder was a significant noise problem.
- The pedestal grinder was bolted to the concrete floor using rubber mounts and rubber inserts/sleeves were used in the panelling to prevent the bolts from short circuiting the rubber mounts.
- Routine maintenance was carried out.
The noise levels were reduced by 2dB from 104dB to 102dB.
£80 (2005 rates).
