In performing a noise assessment, it is imperative that you can show that your employees’ exposure is representative of the work they do. It will need to take into account various factors:
- The work they perform
- The methods which they utilise
- The variance of one day to the next
The noise assessment estimate must be based on reliable information, using data recorded in your workplace alongside workplaces similar to yours or suppliers of your machinery. These readings must be maintained to ensure that at no point do you end up breaking any laws or regulations in your workplace. With noise risk at a low, you can ensure your employees are happy and working productively.
