Noise Monitoring and Surveys to Meet at Noise at Work Regulations (2005)

We undertake workplace noise assessments, meeting the requirement of the Control of Noise at Work Regulations (2005), in order to evaluate and advise on appropriate measures to manage the risk of high levels of noise in the workplace.

The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 came into force for all industry sectors in Great Britain on 6 April 2006 (except for the music and entertainment sectors where they came into force on 6 April 2008).

The aim of the Noise Regulations is to ensure that workers' hearing is protected from excessive noise at their place of work, which could cause them to lose their hearing and/or to suffer from tinnitus (permanent ringing in the ears).

The level at which employers must provide hearing protection and hearing protection zones is now 85 decibels (daily or weekly average exposure) and the level at which employers must assess the risk to workers' health and provide them with information and training is now 80 decibels.

Environmental noise monitoring can also be undertaken for various industrial / commercial sites and applications.

R&B industrial can, in addition, engineer a solution to reduce your noise emissions, refer to Noise Attenuation Control
