Noise at Work (Music teaching)

Comment 8th July 2010

Get rid of the HSE regulations regarding noise at work applying to music teaching in schools and other environments. It is ludicrous to apply regulations clearly designed to apply to heavy industry to the teaching of something that is intrinsically bound up with the sound. A music teacher accepts that they will be 'exposed' to noise and will take responsibility themselves for keeping it to 'safe' levels. Putting this responsibility onto the employer is classic nanny-stateism. Noone that I know in the music education sector wants these regs. So let's abollish them

Why does this matter?

It minimises state interference with both employers and employees. It assumes that employees are thinking and responsible people. It removes burdenssome legislation. It makes it easier to do our jobs well.
