Noise


ICT Technicians often work in ‘server rooms’ or factory floors where quite a lot of noise is generated.


If you have to shout or raise your voice to be heard by someone just 2m away, or if you have ringing in your ears after work there is probably a noise problem in your workplace.


You need to tell your health and safety representative about this and request ear defenders.
