Noise Assessment Wolverhampton

Noise at Work Consultancy are based in Worcester in the West Midlands and we cover the whole of the Wolverhampton 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.

Noise Induced Hearing Loss


Tinnitus is a ringing, hissing or booming sensation in the ear and excessive exposure to noise increases the risk of tinnitus particularly if it is impulsive noise. Tinnitus can also be the first sign of hearing damage.

Noise and Chemicals
Some dangerous chemicals are ototoxic i.e. poisonous to the ear and a synergy has been noted between noise and some organic solvents where they are used in a noisy environment. The direct evidence is limited, however awareness of this fact should be taken into account during risk assessments.

Noise and Pregnant Workers
Exposure of pregnant workers to high noise levels can affect the unborn child and have a later effect on hearing ability particularly with regard to low frequency exposure.
