ARE YOU BREAKING THE LAW IN YOUR WORKSPACE? Wednesday 26 March 2008 PDF Print 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 well known that the most efficient and effective way of controlling noise is by technical and organisational means that protect workers at source, e.g. changes in process, reducing vibration (damping), using sound reducing materials and reducing time spent in noisy areas. Sound Service (Oxford) Ltd has been offering practical advice and materials to Health and Safety Officials and Employers in the UK for nearly 40 years. Their website www.soundservice.co.uk is loaded with free help articles on how to soundproof all types of noise problems from offices to large warehouses and contains a broad range of soundproofing products designed for easy D.I.Y “We have two clear articles on our website designed for both the Employer and Employee. These outline what their rights are, the law and how they can work together to reduce excessive noise in the workspace. We help many employers with bespoke noise reducing solutions and have found some of them were not even aware of the current sound restrictions.” Explains Stephen Young, Technical Manager Sound Service offer a range of systems to treat all types of work related noise. These include; • Acoustic Doors and easy to install door seal kits. • Acoustic Baffles and enclosures. • Various foams to reduce vibrating pumps, compressors • Ceiling and wall sound absorbing tiles to reduce reverberation. • Sound Absorbers for wet rooms or food prep areas. • Anti Vibration Pads to go noisy machines.
