Every year noise costs Australian industry millions of dollars in employee stress and downtime.
Also, many businesses face costly legal claims and litigation for failing to comply with government legislation regarding hearing protection for workers.
Noise not only can damage hearing, it creates danger if workers are unable to communicate or hear machinery or warning signals.
It is paramount for employers to protect their workers from harmful workplace noise.
A person without hearing protectors can be safely exposed to 85dB of noise for eight hours (similar to the sound of a front-end loader).
But by increasing noise levels by a mere 3dB (85 to 88dB), it cuts that time to only four hours.
And by increasing it again by a further 3dB (eg a lawn mower), an unprotected worker is at risk of hearing damage after just two hours.
