Workplace and Occupational Noise Surveys

Most workplaces will create some levels of noise which should be checked to ensure that all employees can work in safe conditions.

Workplace noise surveys (often called occupational noise surveys) are regularly carried out by our acoustic consultants to measure noise levels within the vicinity of individuals at work. Our consultants will undertake noise surveys to measure sound levels over an established period of time and analyse any noise hazards in the workplace. They will produce a report based on their findings and recommend any mitigation needed to reduce employees’ exposure to harmful noise levels.

In the UK, the Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 sets out that all employers have a legal obligation to protect their employees from harmful noise. Therefore, it is essential that correct measures are put in place to ensure that workers can carry out their jobs without the danger of unsafe noise exposure.
