Developed specifically for use by mine management and safety personnel. It aims to simplify the record-keeping and analysis associated with time-motion studies and worker noise exposures, making it easier to identify and solve noise problems.
The software relies on a time-motion study that profiles the worker´s daily activities. At the same time, noise measurements are collected with a dosimeter or sound level meter (SLM). Observations about the worker´s location and tasks or other activities are recorded along with times and durations so they can later be matched up with the noise data.
After the completion of a time-motion study of the worker´s daily tasks and locations (possible noise sources), which measures the worker´s noise exposures during the recorded events, the information is entered into DOSES. The program then displays information about the worker´s accumulated noise dose over time.
