‘Buy quiet’ helps companies to tackle noise hazards at work - French and German versions now available
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.
