If you have a workspace where you cannot be heard without raising your voice, then you may require a noise risk assessment.
Under the Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005, employers have a legal duty to protect the hearing of their employees and prevent damage to hearing from exposure to loud noise at work, if preventable.
Tetra’s trained consultants can undertake a noise survey of the areas of concern and produce a noise risk assessment identifying the risk areas, particularly where the noise exposure levels are above the Upper Exposure Action Level [80DbA] defined in the Regulations.
A noise action plan will be provided that will act as the link between the risk assessment and the control of the risks identified. It will set out a prioritised plan for investigating and introducing noise control and risk reduction measures required by the Control of Noise at Work Regulations; including a list of works necessary to tackle immediate risks and arrangements to prevent future exposure.
