Control measure – Reduce risk from exposure to noise

Control Measure Knowledge

Under The Control of Noise at Work Regulations and The Control of Noise at Work Regulations (Northern Ireland), noise in the working environment should be eliminated or reduced. If this is not feasible, personnel should be removed from the source of the noise, or be provided with personal hearing protectors that are appropriate to the environment or activity.

Pre-planning may identify likely sources of noise and appropriate control measures that reduce exposure to noise.
