Noise Awareness Course

IIRSM Approved

Noise at work can cause hearing damage that is permanent and disabling. This damage is preventable if the right steps are taken but once your hearing has gone it will not come back. It can also interfere with communications by stopping people from being able to un-derstand or follow conversations and it can make verbal warnings or alarms harder to hear. These issues can lead to further safety risks that put people at risk of injury or even death. This course will show you how dangerous noise can be in the workplace, and the main safety issues you should be aware of. It will teach you how to carry out a risk as-sessment and how you can utilise your findings to implement control measures and pre-vent harm from coming to employees.
