||More stringent noise at work regulations came into force for general industry in April 2006. The live music sector was granted a two-year period to develop sector-specific guidance on compliance, but was meanwhile required to comply with existing noise regulations. Local Authorities also have responsibilities concerning monitoring and compliance. This study was carried out to assess the current noise exposure of groups of people within the sector and the impact of the new regulations on live music concerts. This report contains details of the personal exposures of a cross section of workers at twelve events throughout the year. It explores the control measures in place and makes recommendations for improvements.
