Webinar: Noise at Work Assessments - Oct 2020

Closed

FREE event

 

By law under the Control of Noise at Work Regulations revised by the Health and Safety Executive in 2005, employers must assess and identify measures to reduce the risk of long-term hearing damage to employees from prolonged periods of exposure to high noise levels.

 A noise at work assessment is conducted on site with co-operation between the consultant and employer to understand how the facility operates, to monitor noise levels and therefore to ascertain the level of noise exposure that employees are subjected to. An assessment is not always a one off and may need to be conducted again upon a change in process, the installation of new equipment, a change in operating hours or the provision of new noise control measures.

·         A quick “lesson” on noise
