Over 1 million employees in Great Britain are exposed to noise levels that put their hearing at risk (source: Health & Safety Executive). Conditions caused by excessive noise at work include deafness, ringing in the ears (tinnitus) and stress. Those that work with excessive noise levels are legally required to be trained and appropriately protected.
