WE Solicitors have secured £3961.33 for Lynda Russell from Oldham, who suffers with work related hearing loss. Mrs. Russell developed occupational deafness over a period of several years, working as a Semi Skilled Component Printer at Ferranti Limited.
Mr K was exposed to excessive levels of noise, whilst working at Perseverance Mill from 1976 to 2005. He was responsible for the running of a set of looms, a set consisted of 36 looms. At the height of his employment there were between 6 and 7 sets of looms in the weaving shed, a total of between 216 and 252 looms.
Since the introduction in the UK of the first Control Of Noise at Work Regulations in 1989, which replaced the Health and Safety at Work Act,1974, it may have been assumed that the problems of workplaces with the potential to cause hearing damage by subjecting their employers to noise levels exceeding statutory limits no longer exist.
