What do you need to do?

Hearing protection zones

  • Hearing protection must be worn in a hearing protection zone
  • Only essential staff are allowed in hearing protection zones and they must wear hearing protection

A hearing protection zone is an area where the wearing of hearing protection is compulsory. Hearing protection zones can be fixed or mobile and be permanent or temporary, depending upon the nature of the activities. Where possible, all such zones should be clearly signed.

Crew should only be in the immediate vicinity of the stage during noisy periods if the job specifically requires it. The stage should not be used as a viewing platform or rest area for off-duty crew. It is a high-risk environment to which access must be strictly controlled.
