    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    How often should noise level risk assessments take place?


    A noise level risk assessment must apply in workplaces where the noise level is particularly loud or high to the point it could damage a person’s hearing and potentially lead to a permanent work injury if exposure is for long periods of time.

    Prolonged periods of loud noises could cause much worse than just a simple accident at work injury claim, so employers should be very careful when it comes to these assessments.

    How often should employers carry out a noise level risk assessments to avoid any accidents at work?

    There is no set amount of time when you should renew your assessment. The main times when it should be looked at again is when equipment is either replaced or moved or if you have started using items for longer periods to avoid any unnecessary accident at work claims. Basically any change in the noise frequency at work no matter how small should be noted and assessed to help avoid any accidents at work.

    What should I do if I think my employer should carry one out?

    If you feel that the noise level in your workplace is unacceptable and especially if you feel you have or could potentially sustain a work injury from it then you need to speak to your employer about your worries. They have a duty to protect their workers and they should do all they can to prevent such accident at work injuries.

    However, if you feel they are not taking you seriously then you could talk to your union rep or take it higher and make a complaint as this is not a small thing – this is yours and other workers’ health and it is better to tackle the issue now rather than when several accident at work claims are raised.
