Around 17,000 people in the UK suffer deafness, ringing in the ears or other ear conditions caused
by excessive noise at work. However, this damage is preventable if the right steps are taken but once
your hearing has gone it will not come back.
This course starts by going into detail about how dangerous noise can be in the workplace, and the
main safety issues you should be aware of. It will take you through some of the simple science, the
main laws that apply and introduce you to noise level limits. It also covers some of the specific
health risks and how to avoid them by producing risk assessments, action plans and through the
provision of appropriate Personal Protective Equipment. The course will conclude by examining how
to provide information and instructions to employees, along with the most professional way to
conduct workforce health surveillance.
This course is aimed at people that work in industries where excessive noise is a potential hazard.
These include factories, manufacturing environments, entertainment, hospitality, mining,
construction and metal working to name a few.
Noise in the Workplace
Personal Protective Equipment
Information and 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. Understanding the risks and why controls are in place will mean workers are much more
likely to consistently adhere to them.
Many of our other Health and Safety courses compliment this one include, Working Safely, COSHH,
Abrasive Wheels and Asbestos Awareness.
