Health and Safety


Sound Levels/Working at computers/etc.

When working there are certain procedures to take to make sure that you do not damage your eyes or hearing. To protect your eyes from getting damaged, you are advised to take a break every twenty minutes just so your eyes can rest from constantly looking at the screen. To protect your hearing, the music must not be too loud but at the certain volume so it is good enough for you to hear it clearly.


Codes of Practice


MCPS-PRS/TIGA/BIMA clearances to use files

The clearances from freesound all depend on which files I use. Depending on what files I use determines what I can do and can’t do with the file that I download.
