Eave Noise Reduction Ear Defenders

A common issue with traditional ear defenders is that they prevent communication between operatives and make them less aware of their surroundings. This can lead to operatives removing them during works which potentially exposes them to dangerous levels of noise. The Health and Safety Executive has reported that 40% of users supposedly wearing hearing protection are not safe because the defenders are not worn correctly or are removed in order to hear.

Eave noise defenders have been introduced to construction sites across the UK to minimise this occupational health risk.

They contain microphones and speakers, similar to an audio headset. This allows operatives to communicate via Bluetooth. They also filter out background noise whilst accentuating human voices, allowing each operative to clearly hear each other.

They can also be used to measure and pinpoint noise across the site via Bluetooth beacons. This enables staff to see exactly where noise hotspots are and eliminate the hazard at source.
