Hearing protection

Noise can be harmful to your hearing. Employers must provide hearing protection, and the Working Environment Authority recommends that employees use hearing protection if the noise level exceeds 80 dB(A), if peak values exceed 130 dB(C), or if the noise exposure is otherwise harmful or annoying. The noise exposure under the hearing protection must not exceed 85 dB(A) under any circumstances, and the peak value must not exceed 137 dB(C).

Employers must provide hearing protection for employees if the noise level exceeds 80 dB(A), if the peak values exceed 135 dB(C), or if the noise is otherwise harmful or highly annoying. This may be the case if short-term work is performed under very noisy conditions.

Hearing protection must be used by everyone working in areas where the noise level exceeds 85 dB(A). It is recommended that hearing protection be used for noise levels between 80 and 85 dB(A).

 

Hearing protection must always be used when an individual is bothered by the strength or tone of the noise.

Hearing protection is provided for all employees.

protective gloves

Protective gloves

The skin can be exposed to dangerous tools, machines, and chemicals.

This mainly applies to the hands, but also to other exposed skin surfaces such as forearms and the face.

The skin can be protected by using: Special creams and gloves.

However, skin protection does not end when work hours are over. Using hand cleaner will dissolve oil, paint, and other substances that are difficult to remove without damaging the skin's natural moisture. To ensure complete protection, one must thoroughly wash the skin with soap and water and then treat it with a moisturizer. The only satisfactory protection against mechanical injuries is gloves.

When working with chemical products, refer to the workplace instructions for the type of gloves to be used.
