Noise Risk Assessment Cheshire

noise at work assessment

Noise Risk Assessment Cheshire – Are your employees protected from noise exposure in the workplace? Are noise levels excessive in your workplace? Do you need a noise audit for insurance purposes?

These are questions that, as an employer, you have a requirement to fulfil in making your workplace a safe environment for any employee exposed to high noise levels.

 

Your obligations

All employers should carry out a noise assessment within the workplace, in line with The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005. This should be undertaken by a competent person and carried out in-line with the above regulations.

We will carry out

  • An audit on hearing protection measures for employees

 

What are the Noise Exposure & Action Levels?

An action level is a noise exposure level at which employers are required to take certain steps to reduce the harmful effects of noise on hearing. There are two main action levels for continuous noise.

  • The lower exposure action level is a daily or weekly average noise exposure level of 80 dB, at which the employer has to provide information and training and make hearing protection available.
  • The upper exposure action level is set at a daily or weekly average noise exposure of 85 dB, above which the employer is required to take reasonable measures to reduce noise exposure, such as engineering noise control, noise at source etc. The use of hearing protection is also mandatory if the noise cannot be controlled by these measures, or while these measures are being planned or carried out.
  • Lastly there is an exposure limit of 87 dB, above which no worker can be exposed (taking hearing protection into account).
