Level limiters and level-limited headphones, headsets and earpieces

The UK Noise at Work regulations 1989 requires a noise assessment to be made by a competent person to identify exposed persons and any requirements for hearing protection if any person is likely to be exposed above the first action level (an LEP,d of 85dB(A); a rough guide to this level is if two people have to shout to be understood when 2m apart). Further information is available in the attached 'Resources'. Canford offers several ways to meet this requirement when using headphones, headsets or earpieces, as either pre-fitted level limited headphones, headsets and earpieces, or the ability to add limiters to your existing headphones and headsets after assessments.
