Costain Skanska at HS2

HS2 partnered with Eave to prevent occupational deafness

Eave partnered with HS2 and its Euston early works contractor CSJV (Costain Skanska Joint Venture) to take major steps towards eliminating work-related hearing damage.

We used HS2’s London construction sites as a testbed to perfect the latest version of our hearing protection technology, the Eave FocusLite, which uses smart technology to locate and measure noise across a construction site.

“Sixty-eight per cent of all claims against employers are for occupational deafness, which underlines the importance of Eave’s innovation for improving employee health in the sector. As the largest infrastructure project in British history, employing tens of thousands of people and stretching across the 2020s and 2030s we can use HS2’s scale to introduce improvements to working conditions and employee wellbeing that permanently changes the industry for good.”
