Noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) is one of the most prevalent, but often ignored, risks in the workplace and employees must, by law, be protected.
Once noise-induced hearing loss has taken place, it is irreversible.

Noise measurement products experts, Pulsar Instruments, have produced an Employers' Guide containing important basic guidance on companies' duties under the Regulations.

The Guide is relevant to you, especially if you operate a noisy environment, machinery or tools. It explains the ‘Legal limits’ for daily noise exposure for employees and the key levels exposure action values. It offers a useful introduction to the most common methods of assessing noise exposure. It also provides an insight into how to ensure the effectiveness of your workplace noise control programme as recommended in the Regulations.
