Course Price : £35+vat

Course Description

IIRSM Approved

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 online 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.

Target Audience

This online course is aimed at people who work in industries where excessive noise is a potential hazard. These include factories, manufacturing environments, entertainment, hospitality, mining, construction and metalworking to name a few.

Advantages

One of the key points this online 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.

IIRSM approval means that this course meets the rigorous standards of this leading industry body.

Online training is flexible, efficient and cost-effective, so candidates can progress through the modules at their own pace, in their own time, making it easy to fit the training around their work and personal life.
