Module 3: Noise Control and Hearing Protection

Module 3: Noise control and hearing protection

The risk assessment provides the springboard for identifying where control is required and where it will have the greatest benefits.  This module helps you understand and use simple techniques to reduce personal noise exposure by reducing the level of the noise and the time each person spends in the noise.  It gives guidance on the proper use and selection of hearing protection where it is still required.

On completion of this module, you will be able to:

• Explain how you can affect noise around you
• Identify noise controls that are effective: at the source of the noise; on its pathway to the person hearing the noise; and at the person hearing the noise.
• Employ simple noise controls in the workplace
• Understand the use of hearing protection in the workplace.
