Are your employees free from exposure to noise at work? i.e. from machinery, work processes and loud music? Are they all aware of the risks of noise exposures? Do they know how to reduce the risk and the findings from your risk assessment? Do they know how to properly fit and take care of personal hearing protection that you have issued? If you answered ‘no’ to any of the above then your organisation may be in breach of the Control of Noise at Work Regulations and could be prosecuted or fined or served a notice or be exposed to significant legal claims.The provision of training is not a matter of choice or optional, it is an absolute legal requirement for your organisation.
