Sound Advice


  • Everyone involved in music and entertainment has a responsibility to help with noise management.
  • Primary responsibility for complying with the Noise Regulations rests with the employer (may include concert promoters, event organisers, theatrical producers, contractors and publicans).
  • Your responsibility for managing noise exposure, depending on whether you are an employer, an employee, freelancer or self-employed, may be to:
    • take reasonable care for your health and safety and that of others while at work;
    • use control measures in accordance with any instructions given to you;
    • make sure the legal limits on noise exposure are not exceeded.
