Safety Chart Targets Noise Australia: In the metal manufacturing industry, workers are exposed to noise caused by power tools and machinery such as angle grinders, circular saws, power presses, metal guillotines, moulding machinery, core making machinery and cutting, buffing and punching tools. Noise levels that exceed 85 decibels over an 8 hour period can cause permanent hearing loss. It is for this reason that the Metal Manufacturing Industry Guide to Safety 2006/07 has included a new topic on noise, with bullet point information on noise control measures that should be taken to reduce the risks associated with this hazard. Other topics include responsibilities of both the employer and employee regarding health and safety, how to safely manage hazards, and ways to reduce the risks of hazards associated with welding, manual handling, machinery, and slips, trips and falls. All information has been compiled in consultation with the Australian Industry Group to ensure all prevalent safety issues are addressed.
