5 Biggest Noise at Work Mistakes e-Book Cirrus Research

Cirrus Research launched its free e-book that explained the five biggest Noise at Work mistakes made by employers.

It's a step-by-step guide to completing a Noise At Work Risk Assessment, taking an employer through the necessary regulations, pitfalls and potential noise monitoring instruments to get the job done.

Cirrus aimed to take the pain out of the process with its edition of 5 Biggest Noise at Work Mistakes and How to Fix Them, collated by their own in-house experts.

It is ideal for those just setting out on the first noise risk assessment; taking the reader all the way from the Control of Noise At Work Regulations 2005 through to making accurate readings so potential noise risks in the workplace can be addressed.

The best practice guidelines help to ensure compliance with the Regulations and avoid liability from the HSE as well as potential compensation claims from Personal Injury Lawyers under ‘Industrial Deafness’.

The Guide includes why we need to measure noise at work, what is required to comply with the Regulations, how to start a noise risk assessment in your workplace, what to consider when choosing the right equipment, how to avoid common measurement mistakes and ensure readings are accurate and compliant, as well as tips for reducing workplace noise.

Since its launch the e-book has been updated and now contains the 6 most common mistakes made in the workplace.

The Agrippa Pillow Fire Alarm is a battery powered, wire-free unit with a pad attachment that goes under a pillow. If the fire alarm sounds the pillow pad vibrates, high intensity LED lights flash and an LCD screen displays ‘fire’. The alarm is compact and portable and comes in a carry bag so it can be moved around a building as required.

It uses digital, wire-free technology with two preset trigger levels, plus an optional ‘listen and learn’ function that listens for the unique sound of a specific fire or smoke alarm.

The alarm also complies with the highest European standards and has been designed to conserve battery power, boasting an expected battery life of up to two years.

The Laura Ashley Manor Hotel in Elstree used the Agrippa Pillow Fire Alarm to cater for a large party of deaf guests.

CEO of Corus and Laura Ashley Hotels Andrew Clayton, commented: “Geofire responded quickly and efficiently when we found ourselves in urgent need of 32 pillow alarms for a large party arriving in two days time. The alarms arrived the following day as promised, and they were quick and easy to set up.

“Our guests had a good night’s sleep secure in the knowledge that they would be alerted swiftly in the unlikely event of an emergency.”
