RNID offers guidance on Noise at Work Regulations

The guidance is available to download here.

The RNID is also planning to manufacture and sell earplugs designed by a De Montfort University (DMU) student to protect the hearing of young people at nightclubs. Chi Shing Lo, a second year BA(Hons) Product Design student at DMU, Leicester, won the RNID competition entered by 100 design students from some of the UK’s top design universities for his credit card-style device called Earcard.

Emma Harrison, RNID’s Head of Campaigns, said: “We think young people should be able to make informed choices about the exposure to loud noise. If you use condoms, slather on suncream or wear a bike helmet when you cycle, why not wear earplugs and protect your ears from the risk of permanent damage?”
