Safe and Sound - Guide to Hearing Conservation in the Music and Entertainment Industry
This guide includes information and recommendations for the avoidance of hearing damage in workers in the music and entertainment sector. It is aimed at employers and workers whose activity is connected with music - played live or reproduced - and it therefore relates to a wide variety of workplaces, such as theatres, discotheques, clubs, studios, music schools or at concerts. The guide has been drawn up in collaboration with a working group comprising specialists from associations in the music and entertainment industry, accident insurers and occupational safety and health institutions. It serves to help achieve a level of protection with respect to hazard due to noise, such as is specified for all workers by the German Noise and Vibration Occupational Safety and Health Ordinance.
