The Control of Noise at Work Regulations (2005) requires employers to prevent or reduce risks to health and safety from exposure to noise at work. The regulations require employers to:
Assess the risks to your employees from noise at work
Reduce the noise exposure that produces risks
Provide hearing ear protection if the noise exposure cannot be reduced enough by using other methods
Make sure the legal limits on noise exposure are not exceeded
Provide workers with information instruction and training
Carry out health surveillance where there is a risk to health
Blue Sky Acoustics offer tailored workplace noise assessments to evaluate the noise exposure of employees throughout the course of a working day, taking a dynamic approach to accommodate your specific business needs.
Depending on the nature and size of your business, our workplace noise assessments can be undertaken simply with hand-held sound level meters, or where the noise environment is more dynamic, a network of dosemeters worn by employees throughout the course of a working day.
In addition, we offer free advice and guidance for employees, potential noise control measures for significant noise sources within the work environment, suitable hearing protection options where applicable and suggest mitigation measures where possible.
Please contact Blue Sky Acoustics to see how our consultants can be of assistance to your business.
