Noise at Work, Noise Survey & Noise Assessment

Every day thousands of employees in the UK are exposed to noise at work and all the risks that this entails. Noise induced hearing loss (NIHL) is by far the most serious consequence of uncontrolled noise at work and while it is permanent and irreversible, it is also completely preventable.

With the assistance of Mercian Environmental Services, you as an employer can create and maintain a safe working environment for your employees where noise exposure is reduced to a safe level and managed effectively. You will therefore comply with 'The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005'. and also give yourself protection against future compensation claims for noise induced hearing loss.

The following are examples of industries within which our services have been successfully utilised, although the list is not exhaustive:

  • Light to heavy fabrication workshops
  • Foundries and press shops
  • Carpet and other textile manufacturing industries
  • Wood working machine shops
  • Print shops
  • Automotive manufacturing plants
  • Warehousing and distribution depots

Mercian Environmental Services offer:

  • A thorough and detailed noise survey on your premises.
  • Measurement and calculation of daily noise exposure for assessed activities.
  • Evaluation of the risk of noise induced hearing loss and other well documented effects.
  • A clear, concise and accurate written report stating the current noise related risk to your employees and what you need to do, as an employer, to implement an effective and long term hearing conservation programme.

If you would like to speak to us for advice without obligation please telephone our office or use the contact page.

If you are looking for on site audiometric testing or environmental noise testing services, we work closely with organisations that specialise in this field and can deal with your enquiry by passing your request directly to them or act as an intermediary on your behalf.
