By law, employers must protect their staff against the harmful effects of noise. They must ensure that legal noise limits are not exceeded and reduce the risks of noise. Providing hearing protection, information, training and health checks are also legally required.
Do you know what the legal noise limits are? Are you confident that you are compliant?
The Noise at Work legislation says that employers must provide hearing protection to staff who are exposed to daily or weekly noise levels that average above 85 decibels. Though risk assessment must be undertaken where exposure levels average above 80 decibels.
