What are the noise at work regulations?
All UK employers need to comply with the noise at work regulations where their employees could be exposed to noise. Our workplace noise assessment will assess the risk to your employees from noise generated within your business in accordance with the current legislation, HSE Noise Regulations 2005.
The Health & Safety Executive defines the aim of the noise at work regulations (the Noise Regulations) to be “to ensure that workers’ hearing is protected from excessive noise at their place of work, which could cause them to lose their hearing and/or to suffer from tinnitus (permanent ringing in the ears). ” By protecting your employees you protect your business.
