Damage to hearing is permanent and irreversible, and can be very debilitating for the sufferer. High levels of noise at work can seriously affect people’s general health and safety and their overall wellbeing.
Therefore, it is of the utmost importance that noise levels and people’s exposure to noise at work are kept to an absolute minimum. This noise awareness course is designed to familiarise you with the risks posed by noise and help employers and employees alike keep noise emissions as low as they possibly can.
The course looks at the risks posed by noise to hearing, general wellbeing, and workplace safety and will provide information on legislation and employer and employee responsibilities. It will teach you how to carry out a risk assessment and how you can utilise your findings to implement control measures and prevent harm from coming to employees.
- Developed by health and safety professionals
- Accredited by CPD and Approved by RoSPA
- Fully online course and assessment with no time limits
- Full audio voiceover
- Approximate duration: 1-2 hours
- On completion, certificate is posted the next working day
This course is suitable for anyone who works in an industry that involves being exposed to high levels of noise. It will enable both employers and employees to examine their workplace and identify where noise may pose a risk to people’s hearing and general safety and take the necessary measures to minimise exposure and noise emissions.
It will enable both to meet their legal requirements, fulfil their responsibilities, and prevent noise levels from reaching unacceptable levels that could breach legal limits and compromise people’s wellbeing.
On successful completion of the course you will be sent a quality assured certificate through the post the next working
day. This can be used to provide evidence for compliance and audit.
