Noise Monitoring

Noise-induced hearing loss is the most commonly reported occupational disease in Europe.

Noise Levels in the Workplace

Do your employees use noisy power tools or machinery each day?

If your employees are exposed to loud machinery on a regular basis or must raise their voices to carry out a normal conversation for at least part of the day then they could be at risk.

Organisations must assess and identify measures to remove or reduce risks from noise exposure in the workplace so that employees’ hearing is protected.

Regulations recommend that both high and low risks should be managed using a prioritised noise-control action plan.

How our experts can help:

  • Assessment of occupational noise exposure levels for individuals and groups.
  • Using HSE action and limit values identify where employees are exposed to excessive levels of noise.
  • Produce "noise-maps" highlighting areas where occupational noise may require control.
  • Provide practical noise control engineering advice.
  • Assessing the suitability of hearing protection, and providing the best advice on types of protector, noise reduction and compatibility with other safety equipment.
  • Assessing whether your employees require health surveillance.
  • Staff awareness training on the effects of noise and noise-induced hearing loss.
