Failure to Control Workplace Noise can Prove Costly

The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 call for employers to take steps to prevent or reduce health and safety risks due to workplace noise. If you employ staff in an industry where noisy power tools or machinery are used; where impact noise is apparent or where there are explosive sources, then you are required by law to conduct risk assessments and put measures in place to reduce or eliminate risks so that the hearing of your employees is protected. Insurers will expect you to take certain steps to reduce your risk of a claim.
