Exposure to loud noise is the main cause of hearing loss after age. The impact of accumulated exposure to noise on health was documented in the Noise and the Worker guidance published by the Ministry of Labour in 1963. Today, the Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 (implementing the European Directive 2003/10/EC) and the Regulation (EU) 2016/425 on personal protective equipment are the key regulations in place. The latter only came into force on 21st April 2018. Between 2011 and 2014, the number of claims for noise induced hearing loss notified with insurers increased by 189%, the number of claims continues to rise leaving heavy industry employers at a loss.

To mitigate the risks, companies must not only protect their employees from harm, but also monitor the noise environment and keep detailed records of noise levels to ensure that any hearing loss cannot be attributed to other competing causes.

To mitigate the risks, companies must not only protect their employees from harm, but also monitor the noise environment and keep detailed records of noise levels to ensure that any hearing loss cannot be attributed to other competing causes. EAVE has developed a complete solution that meets and improves on the requirements of the regulation, and provides the protection needed for employees while capturing the data necessary to lower future liability. Features include noise mapping and protection from excessive noise while enabling improved communication between employees. The EAVE WORK MK1 is an IOT ear defender headset that attenuates the environmental noise to within safe limits and enables wearers to communicate clearly between them increasing their efficiency. Ensuring face-to-face communication is possible in noisy environments eliminates much of the downtime caused by workers having to remove their headsets, switch off machinery or move somewhere quiet to have a conversation. It is also essential to improve the safety of employees and reduce communications mistakes. When linked to a mobile phone over Bluetooth, the EAVE WORK MK1 can make and receive calls in noise. By limiting exposure to noise while improving communication, the EAVE WORK MK1 contributes to reductions in work-related hearing loss, stress and tiredness, with short and long-term benefits to your organisation and employees. The EAVE WORK MK1 meets current regulations and is available as a helmet mount or free fitting.
The EAVE WORK MK1 is equipped with several microphones and sensors to map noise levels to specific locations across your site and build an audit trail of compliance. Whenever the headset is on, it records real-time noise data and links it to a precise location, provided by Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacons.
