Course Introduction

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.

Course Content

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.
