Welcome to the latest e-newsletter from Health & Safety Matters.

HSM will be hosting a free to attend webinar on noise induced hearing los on 24 July 2019 at 10:30.

Around 23,000 people in the UK suffer from new and longstanding work-related hearing problems, according to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Many employers rely on personal HPE (Hearing Protective Equipment) as a primary means of noise control in the workplace. However, the level of protection achieved in the workplace is often lower compared with the laboratory generated data.

The webinar will be delivered by experts from 3M and will discuss the key elements of an effective hearing conservation programme.
