Many of the machines that emit so much noise in the workplace are vital machines that are necessary to keep the worlds industries alive. Even though employers can do very little to lessen the noise levels that are emitted from these machines they can do something about the amount of sound waves that are absorbed by employee’s ears. All employers must provide their employees with a suitable and safe method of protection from the noise in the workplace whether it is full ear defenders or disposable foam earplugs.

The noise of the wood saw cutting up the large trees was incredibly loud this was combined with machines cutting up wood chipping into shavings and other machinery all over the plant. Because Miss G worked in the office no one thought that she would need any form of protection for her ears for the couple of hours she spend out in the yard labelling orders every day.
