Making a noise about Recycling

North Devon Council requested the services of Devon acoustic consultants Soundguard Acoustics to undertake workplace noise risk assessments at their Brynsworthy Park Environmental Centre. The 7.5m recycling hub is based near Barnstaple, Devon and opened in June 2010. The centre recycles plastics, cans, glass textiles and cardboard as well as offering an education and visitors centre. The delivery and loading operations along with the processing operations were risk assessed and a robust plac of noise control and hearing protection zones were designed to minimise employee noise exposure.
