Noise Course: Noise at Work Competency Training (4.5 Days) IOSH Accredited
Risk Assessment and Management of Noise at Work - with Expert Tutors from Leading Noise Control Consultancy, the Industrial Noise and Vibration Centre Ltd. Noise assessment and control is now considered to be a key aspect of health and safety policy. Irreversible loss of hearing ability is the most common effect of high noise exposure. At worst the result can be Industrial Deafness. Another workplace injury caused by noise is Tinnitus, which produces a phantom ‘ringing’ or ’whooshing’ noise in the ear - there is no reprieve or cure for this. Noise is also proven to cause stress, which may negatively affect productivity and quality.
In the UK, organisations must comply with the HSE'sControl of Noise at Work Regulations 2005. When followed, these laws greatly improve employee protection and reduce the likelihood of employer liability. Realistically, compliance is only possible with a satisfactory knowledge of Noise Risk Assessment and Management.
Reducing risk via noise assessment and noise control requires correct application of accurate knowledge. More and more organisations are therefore recognising the need to train for undertaking this task.
Our Noise at Work Competency Training Course not only deals with noise assessment, but also reducing and managing noise risk. Plus, the unique practical session gives delegates an excellent opportunity to practice noise survey techniques at a real industrial location.
The course is fully accredited by IOSH and delegates gain a recognised IOSH certificate upon successfully completing the end of course open book exam.
