"Global Insurance provider QBE Issues Forum looking at the history of noise in the workplace, the development of statutory and common law, the impact of the new regulations and the challenges presented from a civil claims perspective. We shall present an Insurer’s perspective on the scale of problem, looking at the claims position and discussing the crucial role the Insurance industry continues to have in encouraging effective noise control and hearing conservation strategies. With reference to the new regulations we will suggest a two tiered preventative and liability control strategy, such that exposure is minimised, but also ensuring that employers’ noise strategies are sufficiently holistic and robust to
defend claims in the future.
