Minimising noise pollution for the local community: Ear mufflers

Before work commences, potential disruptions to the local community should be identified.

Noise pollution tends to be the most common complaint when construction work is taking place.

It is important to identify the disruptions that may occur and take measures to offset them.

This helps to minimise any frustrations that may arise within the local community, to help promote a positive image and build a rapport with the local residents.

Below is an example of how a site used ear mufflers to minimise noise pollution and disruption for the community:

  • Provisions for special ear mufflers were provided;
  • This allowed a facility to respond to phone calls for client call centre staff who were unable to be relocated elsewhere during noisy work activities.
