Learn How You Can Help To Reduce Or Control The Risks From Noise At Work

There are many workplaces that have dangerous levels of noise. Whether you’re vulnerable to damage depends on the volume of the noise and the length of time you are exposed to it. But even listening to music too loud on earphones while you work can cause damage to your hearing.
