The HSE set out the Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 act to help to protect workers from having to endure high levels of noise in the workplace meaning employers have to look into keeping noise levels below 80 dB or if there are noise levels generated above this consistently employers must make workers aware of the dangers of noise exposure and provide and enforce the use of the proper ear protection for their workers.
