Occupational Noise Control

Occupational noise control is an integral part of health and safety at any workplace. Under the Queensland Work Health and Safety Act 2011,  it is a legal responsibility of the owners/managers of business to ensure safe workplace. Long term occupational noise exposure can lead to permanent hearing damage to and likely to a major damages claim for the owners/managers. The key issue in occupational noise control is recognising the risk. Often the risk is not identified because of gradual 'acclimatisation' in case of continual 'low level noise' or because the noise is intermittent and of relatively short duration. Identification of the risk of long-term noise/vibration exposure is the most important part of the workplace control.
