What is a Noise Risk Assessment?
Noise Risk Assessments are a health and safety risk assessment specifically pertinent to noise exposure in the workplace for employees and assesses whether your existing employees are being subjected to excessive noise levels when calculated over a normalised eight hour time period. General research in this area indicates that noise induced hearing loss is related to the amount of sound energy entering the ear over an extended period of time, however the impact of sudden high intensity noise levels is also considered as part of the assessment.
