Adequate personal hearing protection must be made available and should be worn correctly at all times where it is not possible to reduce noise exposure below 80 dBA; it must be worn correctly at all times where it is not possible to reduce noise exposure below 85 dBA. It is always of primary importance to reduce noise at source but this may be prohibitively expensive, inconvenient or simply not possible. Even where adequate noise reduction is possible, personal hearing protection may be required whilst measures are being put into place.

A record should be kept of the current noise levels and it is important to ensure they are maintained at a level that will minimise 31 32 Occupational Audiometry risk. At or above the lower exposure action value, a suitable risk assessment must be carried out. If the worker’s daily exposure is likely to be at or above the upper exposure action value (the second action level), the risk assessment must include accurate sound level measurements. A competent person, who can supervise the collection of information and its use in the final assessment, must carry out all noise assessments.

They must report any defect in safety equipment or procedures of which they are aware. They should be aware of the system for reporting defects and problems to the management.
