Did you know, around 17,000 people in the UK suffer deafness, ringing in the ears or other ear conditions caused by excessive noise at work. Once your hearing has gone it will not come back, however this damage is preventable if the right steps are taken and precautions put in place. Understanding the risks and why controls are in place will mean workers are much more likely to consistently adhere to them.

This course is aimed at people that work in industries/environments where excessive noise is a potential hazard, such as factories, mining, entertainment, hospitality, manufacturing, construction, and metal work to name a few.

This course commences by discussing how dangerous noise can be in the workplace, and the key safety issues you should be aware of when working in this type of environment. It will then take you through some of the main laws that apply and introduce you what the noise level limits are. It will also cover some of the specific health risks you may be exposed to and how to avoid them by producing risk assessments, action plans and through the provision of appropriate Personal Protective Equipment. This noise awareness course will finish by looking at how to provide instructions to employees, along with the most professional way to conduct workforce health surveillance.

One of the key points this course is intended to teach is why it is so important to undertake and action points outlined in a noise risk assessment. This may include the use of PPE, limiting how long workers are exposed to noise or a number of other control measures that must be understood and followed. 

This course is IIRSM approved which means that this course meets the rigorous standards of this leading industry body.
