E-fact 4 - Noise - advice for young workers
One of the most significant risks that you face as a young worker is noise. Many workplaces expose you to high levels of noise for prolonged periods, which can cause permanent damage to your hearing, make you feel stressed and anxious, increase your risk of having an accident, and give you a range of other health problems such as high blood pressure. Hearing loss is one of the most common occupational disorders, and you are particularly vulnerable as a young person. But there are things that can be done to control these hazards and risks effectively.
