‘Buy quiet’ helps companies to tackle noise hazards at work

Occupational noise can have major negative effects on health as it causes hearing damage and deafness, stress, poor productivity, and interferes with communication.

A practical guide for buyers of machineries raises awareness of the risks related to occupational noise and encourages companies to buy low-noise equipment.

The guide ‘Buy quiet’ is produced by the NOMAD Task Force, a working group of the European committee ADCO Machinery Directive.
