What are my obligations as an employer?
Are you an employer and unsure of your responsibilities? The law states that employers are obliged to protect their employees from excessive noise by carrying out an assessment and identifying measures to reduce noise exposure in order to protect their hearing.
Workplace insurance policies will often check that you are conforming with noise at work regulations and employers are obliged to ensure compliance.
Where noise risk is low, ensuring compliance may be simple and inexpensive. However for higher risk workplaces, a noise risk assessment can save you money by highlighting the problem noise areas within the workplace before they become a serious issue.
Our reports outline both employer and employee obligations in order to comply with regulations e.g. a noise management plan, training requirements, hearing protection (if required).
We are happy to advise and answer any concerns that you might have and can carry out a Noise at Work Risk Assessment on your behalf.
