Time to invest in a Pulsar sound measuring kit
Pulsar Instruments Plc, are warning employers of the dangers of hearing damage due to excessive noise levels in the work
Loss of hearing can happen in a wide range of industries such as manufacturing but also in the entertainment and construction industries. Recent court cases include an employee being exposed to excessive noise from machinery without hearing protection over a long period of time, resulting in permanently damaged hearing. Consequently, employers and safety practitioners have a duty to be well informed as to how best to manage this area. This is to ensure that safety measures to identify the noise source and reduce noise exposure are in place so as to avoid putting workers' hearing at risk and costly compensation claims.
