At CMSE Consultancy we pride ourselves on the quality and value of the services that we provide our clients. Our Noise Consultants will identify and assess the risks poised by noise in your workplace and environment in accordance with all current Irish noise legislation and current best practice.
The main relevant legislation covering the control of noise in the workplace is the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work (General Application) Regulations 2007, Chapter 1 of Part 5: Control of Noise at Work. Under these regulations, when employees are likely to be exposed to noise at work above the lower exposure action value, an employer is obliged to carry out a detailed Noise Risk Assessment, completed by a competent person.
If any employee is likely to be at risk from noise, the employer must establish and implement a programme of technical and organisational measures to reduce exposure. Personal protective equipment (ear plugs or ear muffs) is always a last resort to reduce exposure if no other measures have been successful at reducing the exposure to noise.
CMSE Consultancy provides independent professional and practical advice on your duties under these regulations. Our Occupational and Environmental Noise Assessment services include:
