Noise - An Introduction to Management of Noise in the Workplace
HSL is to run a 1 day course on Noise - An Introduction to Management of Noise in the Workplace.
1 October 2013
The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 are
designed to protect workers from the direct risks of hearing damage
from excessive noise exposure and the indirect risks from the
masking of warning sounds. To manage noise risks you need to assess
and control noise exposures, and ensure workers themselves
understand the risks and how to keep safe. Hearing protection is
not an alternative to controls and workers reliant on hearing
protection remain at risk. The Regulations allow hearing protection
only as a temporary measure or as a last resort where the risks
from noise cannot reasonably be controlled. Workers at risk
will need to be included in a health surveillance programme to
monitor the progression of hearing loss and to provide feedback on
the effectiveness of exposure controls and hearing
protection. This course provides an overview of noise risks,
and effective workplace management.
The course will cover:
- Noise basics
- Legal requirements
- Risk assessment
- Controlling noise risks
- Audible warnings
- Hearing protection
- Health surveillance
Who should attend?
Those managing noise risks in the workplace.
Who will present?
Liz Brueck, Senior Noise Scientist. Liz has over 30 years
experience as a noise scientist with HSL.
The course will be run at the HSL laboratory in the spa town of
Buxton. Buxton is in the heart of the Peak District and has good
links to mainline train stations and Manchester International
The cost of the course is £395 per person (includes course
notes, lunch and refreshments).
