Sky wanted to ensure that the crew were not over exposed to noise levels and were using adequate hearing protection. The team's extensive research lead them to source the Shawcity Edge Noise Dosimeter.
During the race Sky Sports utilised 14 Edge Noise Dosimeters on crew members to cover all areas accessed including, the pit lane, paddock, OB compound including on the mobile crew who had access to majority of areas around the site.
Sarah Singleton, Health and Safety Media and Technology Ops Manager at Sky Sports had the responsibility of ensuring all personnel involved wore the light, unobtrusive 3M instruments as well as monitoring the results obtained.
Sarah explained that in order to get a good assessment of all areas, they would need 14 noise monitors and that hiring the instruments would be better suited to her company. Shawcity's extensive range of instruments enabled Sky to hire the 14 Edges at short notice and the units were hand delivered to the F1 site by an assigned Shawcity representative. Instrument training was also provided on site to Sarah to ensure she knew exactly how to use her hire instruments and the support continued during and after the hire.
When asked how she felt about the instruments and service received, Sarah stated; "They did what we needed them to! The overall service from Shawcity was excellent. Alex Graft, my assigned sales representative at Shawcity was extremely helpful and flexible to accommodate our needs at short notice." Shawcity offer a complete range of services including sales, hires, service, calibration and training. For further details regarding the Edge and company services please contact the Shawcity team.
