Noise Monitoring

In the UK, The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 requires employers to carry out occupational noise assessments as an integral part of their health & safety strategy. The main aim of the regulations is to ensure that employees are protected from excessive noise exposure to prevent hearing loss and damage.

Protect your employees and stay ahead of the legislation with our noise monitoring products, including bodily worn noise dosimeters.

In everyday life, we are exposed to many sources of noise including from passing traffic, builders using tools or even background music in a shop. Many people are also exposed to noise in their workplace from sources such as production machinery, air extraction systems or through headsets in a call centre. Noise is one of the most common occupational health and safety risks.

The “daily personal noise exposure” is the maximum amount of noise an employee can be exposed to in their working day and is a calculation based on the level of the noise and the length of time spent exposed to it. The “exposure limit value” in the UK is a daily or weekly exposure of 87dB(A) and a peak sound pressure of 140 dB(C).

The control of noise at work regulations 2005 requires employers to:

  • Assess the risks to your employees from noise at work
  • Take action to reduce the noise exposure that produces those risks
  • Provide your employees with hearing protection if you cannot reduce the noise exposure enough by using other methods
  • Make sure the legal limits on noise exposure are not exceeded
  • Provide your employees with information, instruction and training
  • Carry out health surveillance where there is a risk to health
