Noise at Work
Many employees in Great Britain are exposed to noise levels at work which may be harmful to their hearing.
The Control of Noise at Work Regulations came into force for the UK on 6 April 2006 aiming to ensure workers' hearing is protected from excessive noise at work.
Sustainable Acoustics provide practical advice on controlling noise in the workplace in all sectors (including the music industry), and identify good practice to help avoid the harmful effects of prolonged exposure to noise.
Our experienced acoustics consultants carry out thorough Noise at Work Assessments providing you with a detailed analysis of your employee’s exposure to noise within the workplace.
We provide detailed and concise surveys, which are suited to the requirements of your company and offer realistic solutions and strategies which can be reviewed with a Health and Safety Manager.
The surveys will often include use of dose badges.
