The noise and audiometry services
Noise assessment is the foundation of all things holy, or at least all things workplace noise management related anyway, meaning noise surveys are an important part of managing employee risks at work, including the obvious areas such as engineering, construction or the food industry, but also the less obvious such as hospitals, schools and shipping.
Audiometric testing is the touchy-feely element of the Noise Regs and The Noise Chap offers a system of workplace hearing tests where you, the client, remain in control of your data.
With the noise training service you get a noise-obsessed and experienced trainer to darken your doorstep and fill your employees with enthusiasm for all things noise related.

The site is not all about selling noise services and if you are filled with a particularly deep sense of self-loathing and are thinking about doing a noise assessment yourself then this should point you in the right direction. The law part explains what is needed, while the imaginatively titled Health Stuff breaks down what the health issues with noise are, what to do about them, what audiometry actually is and how to go about buying services, while the hearing protection pages go into how to choose and use it.
The Hearing Protection Data page lets you compare over 200 types of hearing protection, while the Noise Levels page gives a database of real-world noise levels. The Resources section has a few other bits including a noise policy and a demo of what Hearing Loss sounds like.
