By law hearing protection equipment (HPE) is required in any workplace environment where the average noise exposure is over 85dB (A). Health and Safety officers must also make sure that the hearing protection equipment used by employees comply with the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Regulation (EU)2016/425.
