Noise at Work Assessment | Cornwall

Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 | Noise Survey | Noise Impact Assessment

An employer is required by law (Noise at work Regulations 2005) to identify the exposure of excessive noise to their employees.  The Control of Noise at Work Regulations (CoNAWR) have been developed in order to comply with the European Union Physical Agents (Noise) Directive (2003/10/EC) which aims to protect workers from risks to their health arising from exposure to noise.

Following the introduction of the Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005, employers have a responsibility to ensure that workers' hearing is protected from excessive noise exposure at their place of work. This means the appropriate control and reduction methods.


The legislation came into force on 6th April 2006.


Changes to the regulations (compared to the previous 1989 Noise at Work Regulations) include the following:


New lower and upper exposure action values.


A new exposure limit value has been introduced, which takes into account the benefit of any hearing protection worn and hence applies to the noise level experienced at the ear. This must not be exceeded under any circumstances;


A need to undertake audiometric monitoring and health surveillance of individuals with noise exposure levels above the upper exposure action value.


Whether your project is based in  saint austell, camborne-redruth,  truro,  penzance,  newquay, falmouth,  saltash  or any other location within Cornwall; we are happy to help.
