Why should a company or employee spend money on noise reduction products? +
For two reasons:
For many mine sites to continue to operate within their environmental consents, it is necessary to treat machinery with acoustic packages to reduce the noise output to the require consent level.
Noise exposure is the most common preventable cause of occupational hearing loss. Whilst occupational noise induced hearing loss is entirely preventable, once acquired it is irreversible.
