Excessive Noise On-Site?

Construction site regulations to minimise risk

The regulations protecting all workers against the effects of noise are the Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005. For construction work specifically, the Regulations state that:

  • Employers must identify hearing protection zones
  • The use of hearing protection is compulsory in these zones
  • The zones must be marked with warning signs
  • Hearing protectors must be regularly inspected and maintained
  • All workers must be fully trained in the use and care of hearing protectors


Approximately 1 million employees in the UK are currently at risk of developing industrial deafness (including tinnitus)
