    In focus: Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005


    The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 were instigated to protect employees from having to work in an environment which could cause a severe work injury including industrial deafness.

    Why are these regulations important in helping to prevent any accidents at work?

    By imposing these regulations employers are forced to comply with these rules to ensure their workers are safe and avoid any potential accident at work claims. This means that if workers have to be exposed to loud noises for long periods of times then employers must ensure they have suitable equipment such as ear defenders to help prevent such work injuries as hearing loss or tinnitus.

    When do these regulations have to be imposed?

    The answer is any environment which is above normal in decibel range, which is usually somewhere that you have to raise your voice to be heard or louder. Also to prevent accidents at work not only volume but pitch must be taken into consideration as prolonged exposure to particularly high noises can also cause severe work injuries to the ear drums.

    If you feel that your company is not complying with the Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005, and that they are not considering their employees’ health, then you can speak to the agency who set these regulations. This could be the difference between a healthy working environment and several work injury claims.

    If you have sustained a work injury within the last three years, whether hearing-related or any other ailment that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to make a claim.
