Dangers of Noise & Vibration

Tue 25, 2023

An important aspect of construction work that often goes unnoticed is the potential dangers of noise and vibration.

🔊 The Deafening Reality: Construction sites can be extremely noisy, with heavy machinery, power tools, and equipment operating at high volumes. Prolonged exposure to such loud noise can lead to permanent hearing loss and other hearing-related issues.

💥 Shaking Foundations: Operating heavy machinery or working near vibrating equipment can cause musculoskeletal disorders, including hand-arm vibration syndrome, back pain, and other joint problems.

🛡️ Safety Measures in Place: Use personal protective equipment (PPE) to minimise the impact of noise and vibration. From noise-canceling ear defenders to vibration-absorbent gloves.

⚙️ Constant Training & Education: Knowledge is power! Check out the latest HSE research into Noise & Vibration here 👉 https://tinyurl.com/HSEnoise to understand the risks associated and learn effective ways to protect personnel.

👷‍♂️ Responsibility to Act: Employers have our duty to create a work environment that minimises these risks.Monitor noise and vibration levels and actively seek innovative solutions to reduce their impact.
