Guardian Safety Noise Assessments
The Control of Noise at Work Part 5 Chapter 1 of the Safety Health and Welfare at Work General Application Regulations 2007 (S.I. No. 299 of 2007) states that the Employer shall make a suitable and appropriate assessment of the risks to employees from noise. There is a duty on the employer to ensure that the noise is eliminated or reduced to a minimum taking account of the principles of prevention.
Exposure to noise can cause several types of hearing problems including Noise Induced Hearing Loss which once developed is then irreversible & Tinnitus which can lead to poor concentration, sleep deprivation and depression.
Our Noise assessments will examine how ‘loud’ noise is and assess the time the employee is exposed to the noise. We will recommend solutions taking into account the principles of prevention. These can range from relocating equipment, erecting sound barriers, task rotation, or providing training signage & hearing protection.
We can also train your employees about the risks to health from Noise and also in the proper use of Hearing Protection.
