Noise Risk Assessment
Noise is a common hazard in many workplaces, and it can cause serious health problems if not properly managed. At Healthscreen, we offer noise risk assessments to help identify staff members who are exposed to excessive noise levels. Our assessments provide recommendations for appropriate control measures and help ensure the health and safety of your employees.
How We Support You
Our comprehensive noise risk assessments are designed to protect your employees from the harmful effects of excessive noise exposure in the workplace. Our skilled professionals conduct thorough monitoring of daily noise exposures, ensuring compliance with applicable action and limit values. By identifying areas where there may be a risk from noise exposure and determining the individuals who are likely to be affected, we provide valuable insights into potential hazards.
Based on the assessment findings, we offer tailored recommendations for control measures, which may include noise control measures and/or the provision of suitable hearing protection. Our goal is to help you create a safe and compliant working environment while minimizing the risk of noise-related health issues.
Additionally, we identify any employees who require health surveillance and ensure that appropriate measures are in place to safeguard their well-being.
Our noise risk assessments provide several benefits for your workplace. These include:
- Identifying staff members who are exposed to excessive noise levels
- Ensuring compliance with legal requirements
- Reducing the risk of health problems related to noise exposure
- Improving employee morale and productivity
- Avoiding costly legal action due to non-compliance
Ensuring Regulatory Compliance
Compliance with regulations is crucial when it comes to protecting employees from the harmful effects of excessive noise exposure. The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 places a legal duty on employers to prevent or reduce the risks associated with noise in the workplace. These regulations set specific exposure limits and require employers to conduct noise assessments, implement control measures, provide hearing protection where necessary, and offer information and training to employees. By utilising our Noise Risk Assessment service, organisations demonstrate their commitment to complying with these regulations and safeguarding the hearing health of their employees.
