Noise associated with construction work is a common cause for complaints from the general public. However, it can also cause the workforce hearing damage if it is not adequately controlled, or if sufficient protection is not provided.
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has published some guidance relating to noise at work. This guidance looks at the problems that noisy working can cause, how employers should be tackling this issue (with reference to the Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005), how employees can identify if there are noise issues in their place of work, and how noise can be controlled to prevent harm.
