Low noise hire and purchasing policy

Low noise hire and purchasing policy

Purchasing equipment that’s noisy could create a problem that’s both expensive and time consuming to solve. So if you adopt a policy of buying low noise equipment wherever possible, you’ll minimise the potential amount of remedial work necessary.

Low noise hire and purchasing policy

To help ensure that those responsible for purchasing and hiring equipment are fully aware of their responsibilities and the consequences that their actions may have on others, the Low Noise Hire and Purchasing Policy can be implemented to provide guidance. The adoption of this policy can also help to demonstrate to the enforcement authorities that your organisation is committed to maintaining the highest environmental standards.

Note. In addition to preventing potential statutory nuisance issues, purchasing low noise equipment will also go some way to covering your health and safety duty of care imposed by the Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005.
