Do you have Environmental Noise Complaints in your business?
Complaints from neighbours about noise emitted from your business can at best be a bit of a nuisance, but at worse could lead to the closure of your business – and this really does happen! The good news is that there is normally a safe passage through it all and there is guidance to help. BS4142 has recently been revised and is there to assess the validity and potential severity of complaints from residents about industrial premises. Gaining an understanding of this standard can certainly help with the management of complaints and also with your ability to work with Environmental Health professionals. This short webinar will give a brief insight into the standard so you can decide what to do next!
