Epidemiological evidence for the effectiveness of the noise at work regulations
The United Kingdom Noise at Work Regulations 1989 and Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 (the Regulations) are designed to minimize the risk of occupational noise-induced hearing loss. This study examined their effectiveness in a longitudinal field study, where participants were followed-up annually over a period of three years. Audiometric and otoacoustic emission measures were obtained in 154 recruits aged 18-25 years at risk of noise-induced hearing loss through occupational exposure and 99 non-exposed controls. The study had power to detect approximately 1-2dB change per year, which is a smaller change than would be expected in the noise-exposed participants without protection. There were no significant effects on auditory function, or rate of change in function, in the risk group when other potential explanatory variables were taken into account. Nor were there significant effects when contrasting exposed participants working in companies demonstrating relatively lower or higher compliance with the Regulations. Noise levels in exposed participants averaged approximately 88-89dB(A) before accounting for hearing protection. The only significant effects on hearing demonstrated in the study were small effects of estimated social noise prior to the study, for example at nightclubs or from personal audio systems. It is concluded that there is no evidence of lack of effectiveness of the Regulations.

The determinants of compliance with laws and regulations with special reference to health and safety
This report presents a review of the extensive body of socio-legal literature that exists to explain and understand the nature of compliance with regulation. It outlines how compliance has been seen in both academic and policy fields in order to describe and explain themes important to assessing the determinants of compliance including the motivations for and interpretations of compliance behaviours, how the literature defines compliance, how scholars have identified the tools available to foster more effective regulatory compliance and enforcement strategies, and difficulties policy actors experience when seeking to achieve greater levels of regulatory compliance.
