Almost every machine emits noise, which the Machinery
Directive requires manufacturers to control. In
addition, employers have a legal obligation to protect
workers from excessive noise. However, noise
measurements are notoriously difficult to make properly,
which is one reason why 80 per cent of machine
instructions do not meet the relevant requirements of
the Machinery Directive. The HSE (Health and Safety
Executive) has therefore been encouraging machine
builders to download guidance on how
to report noise emission in instruction manuals.
More recently, the HSE has identified shortcomings
in the European harmonised standards
for measuring noise emissions. In fact it was found that
noise data for the same type of machinery, measured
using these standards, may not be comparable, and noise
emissions determined using an appropriate harmonised
standard may not be representative of the operator's
noise hazard. Follow the link to see what you should do
