Over 1 million employees in Great Britain are exposed to levels of noise that puts their hearing at risk.
Some 17,000 people in the UK suffer deafness, ringing in the ears or other ear conditions caused by excessive noise at work.
The Control of Noise at Work Regulations came into force for Great Britain on 6 April 2006. Their aim is to ensure that workers' hearing is protected from excessive noise at their place of work.
