How well are you doing?

  • Regular review of noise control is important, to make sure that all the controls are still working

You have taken many steps to improve noise control. To make sure those actions are still effective you need to:

Ensure that performers and crew understand why they need to follow instructions on control measures. Provide additional training or team talks if necessary.

Ensure that those who need to use hearing protection are doing so correctly and consistently.

Review the results of hearing health checks to see how well the noise controls are working.

If necessary, budget for future capital expenditure to include acoustic controls.

Review the steps you have taken (see What do you need to do?) before major changes of programme, repertoire or venue.
