IEC provides workplace noise surveys and assessments for a variety of businesses including mineral/waste sites, wood and plastic processing, metal products manufacture or repair and entertainment premises.
The Control of Noise at Work Regulations (2005) places a duty on employers to ensure that noise exposure levels are controlled. There may be a requirement to provide appropriate hearing protection, conduct ongoing health surveillance and regularly assess procedures and working patterns within the workplace.
The use of hearing protection should not be used as an alternative to controlling noise by technical and organisational means. Where specific areas cannot be reduced below the designated level they should be demarcated as Hearing Protection Zones within which the use of hearing protection is mandatory.
