Noise at work can cause hearing damage that is permanent and disabling. This can be hearing loss that is gradual because of exposure to noise over time, but also damage caused by sudden, extremely loud noises. The damage is disabling as it can stop people being able to understand speech, keep up with conversations or use the telephone. This paper presents the European Union regulations on minimum health and safety requirements regarding the exposure of workers to risks arising from noise and its implementation in the developing countries in relation to:-the harm that noise can cause;-identifying if there is a problem with noise at the workplace;-controlling noise and preventing harm.
