Employers have a legal duty to protect the health and safety of staff from all noise-related risks at work.

Carry out noise measurements and if advised by a risk assessment, a programme of regular audiometry to include pre-employment, baseline and ongoing hearing tests.

Conduct risk assessments - these should consider all the potential risks from noise

Inform, consult, and train workers about the risks faced, low noise working measures, and how to use noise protection.

Monitor the risks and review preventive measures - this may include health surveillance.

Employees must be consulted on health and safety measures before the introduction of new technology or products.

Store and maintain personal equipment and provide training and guidance on how to use it.
