Initiative launched to encourage quieter workplaces

A new initiative has been launched to encourage manufacturers to make quieter machinery and businesses to use it, in a bid to reduce noise-related ill health in the workplace.

170,000 people in the UK suffer deafness, tinnitus or other ear conditions as a result of exposure to excessive noise at work and the ‘Buy Quiet’ campaign, led by HSE, is about getting everyone with an interest looking at what they can do to reduce the risk.
