Excessive noise in the workplace can lead to irreversible hearing loss for employees and potential litigation for employers. As a matter of law, all employers must risk assess the noise levels that they are responsible for and act to protect their employees.
Implementing a Hearing Conservation Programme in your business is the ideal way to address this risk, however evaluating and managing the risks associated with adverse noise levels can be a complex task.
This is why we have created a six step flexible programme to assist businesses in making informed decisions on how best to be compliant and protect their workforce.
These steps and services detailed below can be taken as a complete package or singularly depending on your requirements.
As an employer, you need to assess the risks involved with noise in your workplace and how it effects your employee's hearing. Our comprehensive noise measurement survey will highlight any adverse noise and how you can address any problems.
We can help implement simple solutions that will reduce the noise level at source. Our expert strategy to deal with machinery, engineering and environmental noise in the workplace is often the most cost effective noise control solution.
We have access to the latest technology which will compare your workplace noise levels with a variety of Hearing Protection Equipment (HPE). Our comparison will give you the data to know if existing HPE is suitable for your noise levels, frequencies, and working environment or if a better and more cost effective solution is available.
Bespoke workplace training on Noise Inducted Hearing Loss (NIHL) and the correct use of Hearing Protection Equipment (HPE). Our training packages are bespoke to your individual needs and won't let your investment in protection equipment be wasted due to incorrect application.
Make sure your hearing protection is working in your real world scenario. Our validation technology will measure the attenuation performance while hearing protection is being worn by a user, ensuring the product is configured and fitted for optimum performance.
Communication and hearing protection can work together, and when it does it improves productivity. We specialise in providing combined solutions, so in noisy environments our equipment will aid safety and facilitate critical communications between employees.
