Noise at Work Regulations
The Noise at Work Regulations stipulates that "Every employer shall reduce the risk of damage to the hearing of his employees from exposure to noise to the lowest level reasonably practicable". To this end, the Regulations require the a noise assessment should be made if employees are likely to be exposed to the first action level or above, or to the peak action level of noise. The assessment should be reviewed as appropriate and adequate assessment records kept. Where employees are exposed to noise, adequate ear protection must be provided and ear protection zones set up where necessary. Any equipment provided must be carefully maintained and employees should be given information on the steps they can take to protect their hearing in the workplace..
Together we can find out how loud, and for how long, employees are exposed to noise within your environment, then select the correct level of hearing protection for each situation.
