The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 set out clear workplace noise exposure.
It is the responsibility of employers to ensure that their workforce are not exposed
to levels beyond these limits. An occupational noise assessment must be carried out
if noise levels are thought to be at or above the first action value of 80dBa.
Occupational Hygienist Services can carry out a thorough workplace noise monitoring survey that gives you a clear representation of noise levels in your work environment. Personal noise dosimetry and frequency band analysis are used to establish workers noise exposure levels and allows for a more focused approach to noise control measures.
We will provide you with a detailed report that clearly identifies the noise exposure levels of individual employees, background levels, adequacy of existing controls, and practical recommendations to help you achieve lower exposure levels. Any gaps in legislative compliance will be highlighted, along with recommendations in how compliance can be achieved.
