Hearing Awareness Week

Noise at the workplace is the major cause of noise-induced hearing loss in South Australia.

Noise can also create stress, and can be a safety hazard at work, interfering with communication, acting as a distraction and making warnings harder to hear. Reducing noise levels at the source provides the most effective way of protecting workers' hearing as well as providing numerous other benefits to workplaces.

If you are concerned about your hearing there are a range of resources and publications available for noise control in Workplaces.
