Noise Assessment Walsall

Noise at Work Consultancy are based in Worcester in the West Midlands and we cover the whole of the Walsall area. Our company was established in response to an ever-increasing demand for noise exposure testing and evaluation, principally in the Industrial Occupational Health and Safety sector.

Noise induced hearing loss (NIHL) is the most common occupational disease in Europe and accounts for about one third of all work related diseases, ahead of skin and respiratory problems. In the UK some 170,000 people in the UK suffer deafness, tinnitus or other ear conditions as a result of exposure to excessive noise at work .It is permanent and is caused by irreversible destruction of hair cells in the cochlea which initially results in the loss of high pitched sounds and may extend to lower pitched sounds in the future

It is usually caused by prolonged exposure to loud noise but brief exposure to impulsive noise from, for example, gunshots, nail or rivet guns or direct metal on metal contact can have permanent effects such as permanent loss of hearing, tinnitus or even physical damage such as a split eardrum membrane.

With the support of the Noise at Work Consultancy, you as an employer can create and sustain a safe working situation 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 give yourself protection against future compensation claims for noise induced hearing loss. We can help you with a comprehensive noise risk assessment.
