Risk Assessment

Is the noise intrusive like a busy street, a vacuum cleaner or a crowded restaurant for most of the working day?

Do your employees have to raise their voices to carry out a normal conversation when about 2 meter apart for at least part of the day?

Do your employees use noisy powered tools or machinery for more than half an hour each day?

Do you work in a noisy industry, eg construction, demolition or road repair; woodworking; plastics processing; engineering; textile manufacture; general fabrication; forging, pressing or stamping; paper or board making; canning or bottling; foundries?

Are there noises due to impacts (such as hammering, drop forging, pneumatic impact tools etc), explosive sources such as cartridge operated tools or detonators, or guns?

Noise Profile

Record Leq (dB(A))

Record the dB(C) peak value

Control Measures

Are hearing protective equipment mandatory?

REFERENCE: Example of ear protection equipment
[This is an example of how you can use iAuditor to include best practice reference images in your templates to assist with inspections]

Can the noise source be eliminated?

Is additional maintenance required to reduce noise levels e.g. by lubrication, tightening, cleaning etc of equipment? (Reassess noise level after maintenance work is complete)

Can the equipment be modified to reduce noise at source, e.g. damping, silencers, baffles etc fitted?

Can inherently quieter components be selected e.g. slotted circular saw blades on woodworking equipment or quieter fans? (Reassess after replacement)

Can the equipment be Isolated i.e. removed to another location away from people at work?

Can the equipment be enclosed?

Is a noise refuge area needed?

Can absorptive material be used to deaden noise in the workspace?

Do staff need training or information on the noise risks?

Is health surveillance required?
