Providing ear defenders for hospital patients to minimise noise disruption

Noise from construction work can be very disruptive for members of the public. While the industry strives to minimise disturbance through regulated working hours, there are times when noise is unavoidable.

See the examples below for how one hospital project minimised the noise impact of works:

  • Some of the children were to ill too be moved to a different bed during a noisy period of works.
  • The site therefore provided ear defenders for the children and parents to avoid any unnecessary distress.
  • The ear defenders were bluetooth enabled, so they could listen to music or the TV in the ward.

See the link below for further details about these ear defenders.
