The third edition of “Controlling Noise at Work (L108) aimed at employers and other duty holders has now been published.  The guide has been updated in keeping with changes to related legislation, technical advances and experience. The emphasis is on the control and management of risks from exposure to noise. HSE’s policy on the control of noise has not changed.

Other useful information available on controlling noise at work include the noise exposure calculator to help you work out your daily noise exposure, weekly noise exposures, and estimate the performance of hearing protection.
