Noise awareness training

Workplace Hazard Information training & Noise awareness training course

Do you need to do some training on noise awareness in the workplace?

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.

Is this course for me?

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.

Our noise awareness training is just one of a range of workplace safety courses that we offer here at UK Online Training.

Noise awareness training: what is covered?

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.

What are the advantages of doing this course?

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

Understanding the risks and why controls are in place will mean workers are much more likely to consistently adhere to them.

What our students say

Wonderful course, very easy to follow. Got me up to speed in no time at all on the basics of fire safety. Would recommend to others wishing to learn more about the basic principles of fire safety in the workplace.

I enjoyed this course and found the interactive videos easy to follow.  The course content is well thought out and provided lots of useful information.  I passed each module with flying colours and feel I now understand the basics when it comes to asbestos awareness.  Would highly recommend this online course.

The level 1 food safety for catering course was easy to follow and I learned a lot.  I enjoyed the way the course was delivered and how it was broken down into small modules, which made it easier to learn.  I have since completed level 2 food safety too.
