||These Regulations give effect in Great Britain to provisions of CEC Directive 86/188/EEC (see CIS 87-45). They impose requirements on employers, and to a lesser extent on employees, with respect to the assessment and prevention of noise exposure in the workplace, and with respect to the protection of workers exposed to noise. The first action level (the level at which assessment of exposure becomes mandatory) means a daily personal noise exposure (DPNE) of 85db(A). The peak action level (200 pascals) is a level of sound pressure the occurrence of which for any length of time requires the wearing of personal ear protectors.
