Abstract Each day, millions of employees in Europe are exposed to noise at work and all the risks this can entail. For European Week for Safety and Health 2005, the Agency produced a report looking at how the European directive structure and the complementary standards ensure that risks to workers from noise are addressed to reduce the high personal, social and economic cost of ill health and accidents arising from noise exposure. This fact sheet summarizes the report.
