According to the HSE (Health & Safety Executive), there are over one million employees in Great Britain exposed to noise levels that could put their hearing at risk.
Most are not aware that noise induced hearing loss is one of the most common risks in the workplace which employees must, by law, be protected from. Once noise induced hearing loss has occurred the results are permanent, making it imperative for business’s to take the necessary steps in reducing the risk of noise damage at work and keep within the `Legal Limits` of daily noise exposure.
