    The level at which employers must provide hearing protection and hearing protection zones is now 85 decibels (daily or weekly average exposure) and the level at which employers must assess the risk to workers' health and provide them with information and training is now 80 decibels. There is also an exposure limit value of 87 decibels, taking account of any reduction in exposure provided by hearing protection, above which workers must not be exposed.

    Also HSE regulation:

    How can hearing protection be used effectively?

    Do:

    • make sure the protectors give enough protection - aim at least to get below 85 dB at the ear;
    • target the use of protectors to the noisy tasks and jobs in a working day;
    • select protectors which are suitable for the working environment - consider how comfortable and hygienic they are;
    • think about how they will be worn with other protective equipment (eg hard hats, dust masks and eye protection);
    • provide a range of protectors so that employees can choose ones which suit them.
