SOUND

What controls are available to mitigate risk?

  •  Wear the correct hearing PPE; make sure hearting PPE is worn properly and maintain in good condition

  •  Manage individuals’ exposure time to high noise areas. The longer an individual is exposed to high noise the higher the risk of hearing damage

  •  Shutdown high noise equipment if necessary

  •  Use “quiet” tools where appropriate 

  •  Install sound curtains or barriers to reduce noise levels personnel may experience
