Over 170,000 people in the UK suffer from deafness, tinnitus and other ear conditions as a result of exposure to noise within the workplace.
To learn more about controlling noise in the work place, listen to our informative podcast, "5 steps to controlling noise in the workplace".
The latest Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 (came into force 6/4/06) place a duty on employers to ensure that noise exposure levels are reduced to meet the new exposure limits and a specific requirement is placed on employers to ensure health surveillance is conducted.
One of the major changes to the regulations is the reduction by 5dB of the exposure levels at which action has to be taken.
