In 2008, workers in the music and entertainment sectors became protected from exposure to excessive noise under the Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 (the Noise Regulations).

Containing practical guidance on the control of noise in places like concert halls, theatres, amplified live music venues, pubs/clubs and studios, this book was put together by representatives across the spectrum of the British music and entertainment sectors, Environmental Health Officers and the Health and Safety Executive. Offering simple, sensible and solution-based advice in order to meet regulations, the emphasis is on preventing irreversible hearing damage not enjoyment. In two sections, firstly a guide on what you need to know and advice for specific sections of the industry.
