How do I use the information from my risk assessment?

Your risk assessment will have produced information on the risks and an action plan for controlling noise. Use this information to:

  • Tackle the immediate risk, eg by providing hearing protection.
  • Identify what is possible to control noise, how much reduction could be achieved and what is reasonably practicable.
  • Establish priorities for action and a timetable (eg, consider where there could be immediate benefits, what changes may need to be phased in over a longer period of time and the number of people exposed to the noise in each case).
  • Assign responsibilities to people to deliver the various parts of the plan.
  • Ensure the work on noise control is carried out.
  • Check that what you have done has worked.
