Ear Protection Mandatory Safety Signs

Ear protection safety signs are a visual reminder of the need to use hearing personal protective equipment (PPE) in the workplace. These are necessary to protect against a range of potential hazards including; excessive noise, intrusion of water; excessive wind; dust particles; or foreign bodies

The ear protection products are outlined in the Personal Protective Equipment Regulations 1992. Hearing protection equipment can include ear defenders, earplugs, earmuffs or headphones. In addition, the European Physical Agents (Noise) Directive 2003/10/EC implemented in the UK IN 2006, requires that noise be eliminated wherever possible, and remaining noise levels of 80dB ear protection should be available, and at 85dB hearing protectors are compulsory.

The signs indicate the need to use the appropriate hearing appliances, and their location of use. These mandatory safety signs and safe conditions safety signs are manufactured to comply with the harmonised standard EN 7010, and the Signs and Safety Regulations 1996, covering the symbol or pictogram, colour, and layout.

Common applications include: at work in industry, manufacturing, construction, civil engineering, mining, oil and gas, forestry, defence, aviation: and recreational pursuits such as watersports, motorsports and music concerts.
