5 Ways to control noise at work

Sound control advice

5 Ways to control noise at work

By: Admin

Follow our 5 tips to help control workplace noise

According to HSE statistics it appears the number of new claims for Noise-Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) claims are falling but over one million employees in the UK alone are still exposed to levels of noise which put their hearing at risk. To make a difference to these people we’re now at the point that further reductions in NIHL will require much better noise control and much earlier interventions especially for high risk workers.

Here’s 5 tips to help you:

1. Conduct comprehensive noise assessment surveys and measurements using suitable Class 2 sound level meters (such as the Pulsar Nova) to identify:

  • which employees are at risk, and
  • where and when are they at risk.

2. Repair, replace or upgrade noisy machinery.

3. Mark out areas of concern and provide appropriate noise-activated warning signs such as the PulsarSafeEar.

4. Establish a buy quiet policy and company noise policy.

5. Provide training and education for all staff.

Pulsar Instruments has published a FREE Guide for Employers “Steps for Controlling Workplace Noise” to help employers take control of noise at work. Download it here Noise at Work Regulations.
