The University is committed to put in place measures to protect staff (and students) from the risks of Noise Induced Hearing loss (NIHL) and tinnitus, which can be caused by exposure to excessive noise. As well as a health hazard, noise at work can also be a safety hazard, if it interferes with communication, or makes warnings for example fire alarms, harder to hear.

This guidance document sets out the specific standards and procedures and recommends good practice to ensure the control of excessive noise in the workplace.
