The SoundSign: your go-to for safety signage

The Control of Noise at Work Regulations state that companies must clearly define any areas where there is a noise hazard, and clearly notify workers of any potential danger of high noise levels so that they can put on hearing protection.

But how can you define these areas and notify your workers?

You could put up standard printed “Hearing Protection Must Be Worn” signs for the high noise areas in your workplace which would mean that employees must follow the instruction continuously in these areas. This also would mean that someone would have to monitor the area to ensure that workers are complying.

The downside to this is that wearing hearing protection constantly, especially where noise levels are intermittent may not be practical, and it’s well known that employees don’t often favour wearing hearing protection.

Noise-Activated Warning Signs

Noise-Activated Warning Signs provide a beneficial alternative to printed signs as they are linked to the actual noise levels within the workplace making it easier for them to help manage the wearing of PPE.

With Noise-Activated Warning Signs, employers are able to set preferred trigger levels. Once these pre-set noise levels are met, the sign will light up, alerting employees in the affected area that hearing protection should be worn.

Protect your workspace and keep people alert
