Occupational Safety and Health Management Courses
(MNW)Managing Noise at Work

Noise at work has been generally neglected by the public or even those engaged in noisy occupations. However, people working in noisy working environment, if not properly protected, are likely to contract occupational deafness as a result of prolonged exposure to noise. Having suffered from hearing impairment, such persons would not only be affected in their daily life, but they might also be exposed to risk at work. In turn, this would incur costs (such as medical and insurance) to the production or business of the organisation. To a lesser extent, noise also causes nuisance to workers at work as well as the public, thereby reducing productivity and harming the image of the enterprise concerned. Hence, employers should pay attention to noise control and take measures to protect their employees from being affected by noise at the workplace.
