Noise and vibration at work
We carry out occupational noise at work assessments in accordance with the requirements of the EU Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005, to establish both employees' exposure to potentially damaging noise sources and employers' responsibilities to protect their work force.
We also provide expert witness reports and testimony in relation to noise induced deafness and hand arm vibration claims, acting for the claimant, defendant or as a single joint expert. These cases often relate to noise exposure and vibration said to have been suffered many years in the past, in facilities and due to plant, which have long since ceased to exist. The retrospective evaluation of this exposure in such cases presents a challenge CSA is uniquely placed to address, with our wealth of practical experience across a range of industries and professions.
Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) has been studied in the traditional industrial settings, from light to heavy, and all shades between, but also unexpected professions including exotic dancers and orthopaedic surgeons.
