What do you need to do?

Hearing protection equipment

  • Personal hearing protection should be considered only as a last resort when all other methods of control have been explored, or while permanent solutions are being sought
  • Personal hearing protection must be used where necessary to eliminate or reduce the risk to hearing
  • Users or their representatives should be involved in the selection
  • Users must receive appropriate instruction, information and training in the use of the selected protection, and be monitored in its use

Personal hearing protection should:

  • Control the risk
  • Not over-protect
  • Be comfortable and suitable for the environment
  • Be properly used
  • Be worn at the right time
  • Be readily available to all who need it
  • Be properly maintained

People should be trained in their specific duties.
