NORTH Lanarkshire Council is encouraging employers to take action to protect workers from hearing loss through noise at work.

During Noise Action Week, businesses, such as nightclubs, pubs and tyre and exhaust fitting premises, were targeted to raise awareness of this issue.

The council’s environmental health officers provided practical advice on how to reduce the impact of loud noise on employees and make staff aware of damage that can be caused to their hearing if they don’t follow measures put in place by management.
