Employers not only have a legal obligation to ensure that their employees are not exposed to noise levels that pose a risk to their health and safety, but many regulations specify that an assessment should be carried out to confirm that the exposure standard is not exceeded.
An workplace noise assessment, also known as a noise survey or noise testing, involves measuring the level of noise in your workplace and how long employees are exposed to it by using specialised monitoring equipment.
