The Limitations of Existing Safety Measures:

While safety recommendations and guidelines exist for rock breaker operation, they often focus on the machine itself. Measures such as proper boom pressure and thrust direction, avoiding improper use, and wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) are commonly advised. However, these recommendations may not fully mitigate risks associated with noise, debris, and dust.

Furthermore, noise control measures primarily revolve around hearing protection for the operator. However, this solution may not be applicable to all workers or individuals in proximity to the construction site. Therefore, it is evident that the current safety measures fall short of addressing the comprehensive needs of clients and the surrounding community.

The Need for Innovative Solutions:

Recognizing the demand for enhanced safety in construction works, it is crucial to seek innovative solutions that are practical, efficient, and cost-effective. Clients, employees, regulators, and the public expect advancements that minimize risks and improve the overall construction environment.

Learn More About the Experiences of Hushtec Customers

Hushtec is our preferred noise mitigation partner, they have been helping us for years now and being able to also have full customisation on already unique high performing products is just WOW factor. Guys on-site love them for how easy and practical they are to shift alongside how effective they are at reducing noise on some of our louder machines such as rock hammers and concrete cutters.

I used to think noise barrier blankets didn’t work until I tried the Hushtec panels. These reduced our noise on-site immediately, which enabled us to continue works throughout the night on an urgent project, saving our customer thousands and helping complete the project before scheduled. The team is also very knowledgeable and helpful, couldn’t ask for more.

Hushtec panels are awesome!! No more complaints from our neighbours, more privacy and safety for our on-site staff, and free marketing with our logo printed on them! Highly recommend.
