The EssentialSkillz Noise at Work online training explains what sound is and how it impacts both health and safety. The Noise Awareness training explains how noise and noise exposure are measured, so that the user can interpret noise surveys and use them in a risk assessment, but is not intended as a comprehensive course on carrying out noise surveys.
The hierarchy of noise controls is explained, with an emphasis on eliminating sources of noise, reducing noise at source, and minimising time spent exposed to noise. Where hearing protection is needed to manage the residual risk, the Noise at Work training outlines how to select and wear hearing protection, although this is not a substitute for manufacturers’ information on products, or for a face-to-face demonstration and assessment of correct use of hearing protection.
If hearing protection is needed, selection of hearing protection should take account of information from manufacturers as well as the content of this course. Where hearing protection is worn a face-to-face demonstration should be given by a competent person, and users should be given feedback to assess if they understand how to use it correctly.
Like all our courses, the EssentialSkillz Noise Awareness online training can be customised to meet your needs, enabling your workforce to understand the specific policies and procedures you have developed for your organisation.
All our courses provide technically accurate training which keeps your organisation in line with best practice. We include the latest techniques in learning which ensure learners are engaged throughout. Our courses are also:
Add your own scripts, images, videos, presentations and interactions - with no coding experience required. Use our suite of templates to make our courses your own, delivering highly relevant training to your organisation at no extra cost.
Our Noise at Work course can integrate with JAWS ® a widely available text-to-speech integration to help visually impaired users engage with the same, unabridged and high-quality compliance training as their colleagues.
On successful completion, learners receive a personalised certificate which includes the learner’s name, score and date of completion. Certificates can be viewed, downloaded and printed off at any time to serve as a record of compliance.
Create your own question and answer bank to test your users on the key information that they need to know to be fully compliant. Set core questions to appear in the test section that users are required to pass so that crucial learning points are reinforced.
Generate 10 random questions from a bank of 20 to test your user’s retention and understanding of key content.
As training administrator, you can configure the passing score that users need to complete the course. Set your own grade boundaries to ensure your training complies with the standards set out by your organisation.
Any employees or contractors could usefully use this course as part of an induction process, or as refresher training. It is also useful for someone who needs to interpret a noise survey from a specialist in order to carry out a risk assessment of a workplace.
