The Noise at Work Regulations 2005 require employers to carry out a noise risk assessment where any employee is likely to be exposed to noise at or above the lower exposure action. Its aim is to reduce the incidence and severity of hearing loss resulting from excessive noise exposure in workplaces.
Noise monitoring, assessments and surveys are required for a huge range of workplace activities, from engineering works to light manufacturing and even office-style environments - but in most cases simple safeguards and working practices can resolve any potential problems.
