Noise

The Hearing Conservation Program on campus applies to all areas where there is the potential for hearing loss due to noise in the workplace.

Areas applicable are:

  • Foundation Shop
  • Sculpture Shop and studio space
  • Welding Shop
  • Design Shop
  • Paint Shop

There are also some specific Facilities duties where hearing protection is required.  The Hearing Conservation Program identifies exposure levels to employees and provides recommendations related to the control of noise in these areas.  Where levels cannot be reduced to below allowable WorkSafeBC exposure limits, hearing protection is required.

Please see the Manager, Safety, Conduct and Emergency Management if you’d like a copy of any noise reports.
