||Dec. 2006, No.91, p.54-56. Illus. 2 ref.
||European Directive 2003/10/EC (see CIS 06-253) on noise at the place of work came into force in France in July 2006. New rules require employers to protect noise-exposed workers. The construction sector is particularly concerned by these new provisions, which are discussed in this article. Topics addressed: responsibilities of employers with respect to exposure evaluation; defining the thresholds above which employers are required to take action; information of personnel on the risks they face; supply of hearing protection; noise level thresholds requiring routine checks and systematic audiometric testing.
