Managing Noise On Site

Guide to managing noise on site Protecting workers’ hearing for life

How noise on site affects workers

Noise at work can interfere with communications, making warnings harder to hear. It can also reduce people’s awareness of their surroundings, creating issues which can lead to safety risks. Exposure to noise at high levels results

in damaged hearing and may occur over time, or result from sudden, extremely loud noise. For example, your hearing would be damaged after hearing noise of 85dB for eight hours.

In contrast, sounds measuring 130dB instantly cause damage.
