Noise Risk Calculator

About Your Lifestyle

Let's take a look at your typical leisure and work activities. Depending on your lifestyle, this might take a little while, but the more information you provide, the more accurate your result will be!

The risk calculator is primarily aimed at older teens/adults, so it includes leisure activities most common to these age groups. You will probably find that it contains some activities that don't really apply to you, or it might leave out some activities that you wish were included.

It's not a big problem, but it means that the risk calculator won't be as relevant for people your age. You are still more than welcome to complete the calculator but just keep in mind that you may find it more useful when you're older.

Thanks. We've listed some typical lifestyle activities in 6 groups:

Icon of turntable
Going Out

Icon of power drill
Power Tools
Icon of head with hardhat

First, let's start with your leisure time.

Consider each leisure activity and tell us how often you participate. Don't include activities you did as part of paid work - we look at work activities afterwards.
