As more and more people are employed in offices and contact centres, there is a growing risk of exposure to dangerous noise levels. Though there are regulations in place that deal with noise exposure, they are not always understood and correctly enforced in offices where headsets are used.
Make sure you keep your headset users safe. Everything you need to know about the regulations and risks is explained in our Noise At Work paper.
There are several devices on the market to protect headset users from acoustic shock and ensure compliance with EU regulations. Here are a selection of the best:Protecting your headset users

Soundshield removes unwanted noise from a call without affecting the voice communication by analysing and eliminating only ‘offensive’ sound frequencies. In this way call clarity is maintained and headset users safeguarded. Noise exposure data can also be downloaded to demonstrate legislative compliance.
Plantronics DM15E – A digital amplifier that uses Plantronics’ SoundGuard Digital technology to filter sudden noise spikes and monitor daily sound exposure.
Jabra Link 850 – Using Digital Signal Processing the Jabra Link 850 removes hiss, buzz and other background artefacts from calls as well as automatically adjusting calls to a consistent volume.
