Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005
The current EU noise legislation, the Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 (Noise Regulations 2005) reduced the previous* 'action levels' and also introduced 'legal limits' for daily noise exposure. These changes were driven by an EU directive in a long term attempt to eliminate noise-induced hearing loss in the workplace.
Carrying out a noise regulations risk assessment can seem like a daunting task, and there is a lot of information out there, which for the busy employer and health and safety practitioner can make it seem more onerous and complex. So Pulsar Instruments, as noise measurement experts, have put together a brief guide for companies who are trying to control their own noise problems. Our basic guidance covers the 5 essential steps for compliance with the Noise at Work Regulations 2005 and it will allow you, together with the right tools, to take control of noise and be compliant with the regulations.
Noise awareness training course to learn how to measure noise
Learn how to measure and manage Noise at Work in just one-day!
Occupational noise is one of the biggest causes of hearing loss and tinnitus in workers today. There is no cure for this “noise-induced hearing loss” but it is preventable by making sure that employers understand the noise regulations, address workplace noise hazards and supply appropriate protection when needed. If you’re not sure how to go about this then this one-day noise awareness course is for you.
Pulsar Instruments course, aimed at people responsible for health and safety in their organisations, will help you address the following questions:
• Do we have a noise at work problem and, if so, who is at risk? • How do I comply with the ‘Controlling Noise at Work Regulations 2005? • What do I need to measure and why should I calibrate my noise monitoring equipment? • How do I apply my measurements to the current action levels and exposure limits? • What should I do if we exceed any of these levels or limits? • Noise awareness course dates and venues
