Advice and Information

How do I know what hearing protection to choose?

Posted by Message
Protec Staff29/03/2007 10:20:17 The control of noise at work regulations 2005 (amended Feb 2006) requires that hearing protection must be made available upon request at a level of 80db and must be worn at levels above 85db. Hearing protection is given a SNR (sound noise reduction) rating which will reduce the noise level by that amount e.g. If the noise level within a working environment is 105db you willrequire hearing protection with a minimumSNR rating of 25SNR in order to reduce it to a safe level.
