Noise and Vibration

Information on noise and vibration in the workplace

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