New noise chapter added to IOSH’s OH toolkit

 A new chapter focusing on the adverse effects of noise in the workplace has been added to IOSH’s online Occupational Health toolkit.

The development of the new guidance by IOSH’s Information & Intelligence team follows feedback from members at the annual IOSH Networks Conference last year.

It covers the main sources of noise at work, typical and hazardous noise levels, and the health effects of noise.

The guidance also highlights the legal background to noise at work, noise control measures, and provides advice for managers and employees on early intervention and rehabilitation.
