Noise at Work
The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 requires employers to prevent or reduce noise exposure at work. By assessing your employees’ noise exposure you not only help to protect your staff’s hearing, but you can benefit from reduced sickness, increased productivity and limit your liability for compensation claims.
Employers have a clear duty of care to assess employees’ noise exposure, educate staff and take any reasonable action required to monitor and reduce exposure.
Not all noisy workplaces are as obvious as construction sites or factories. Noise problems occur in a variety of places such as kitchens, classrooms, kennels and gyms.
4 Step Programme
Using our 4-step programme, RV Acoustics ensure your staff have the correct protection from excessive noise exposure in the workplace. This will ensure compliance and contribute to potential legal defence in the future.
Reducing noise levels will also guide your business towards happier and more productive staff with long term savings on hearing protection and health surveillance. Our work is always fully documented.
At RV Acoustics, we are an all-in-one package. We can carry out the noise risk assessment, identify noise controls, specify adequate hearing protection, provide an easy to follow noise action plan, give staff noise awareness training, management training and onsite health surveillance (hearing tests), all of which are fully compliant with the legislation.
Failure to Act
Personal Injury Lawyers are now going after companies for compensation for Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) to employees past and present. The average compensation award for the mildest form of hearing damage claim is £10,400 and can also result in a large fine from the Health & Safety Executive (HSE).
By law, as an employer, you must assess and identify measures to eliminate or reduce risks from exposure to noise so that you can protect the hearing of your employees. RV Acoustics can do all this for you.
