Many people experience noise levels at work that may be harmful, leading to permanent and incurable hearing damage. This third edition of Controlling noise at work (L108) is for employers and other dutyholders.
It includes the Control of Noise at Work Regulations. Plus, it also features guidance on what the regulations mean, setting out an employer’s legal obligations to control risks to workers’ health and safety from noise. You can download L108 free of charge here or purchase a hardcopy for £20 here.
The guide has been updated in keeping with changes to related legislation, technical advances and experience. The emphasis is on the control and management of risks from exposure to noise.
HSE’s policy on the control of noise has not changed.
