Module 4: Using Health Surveillance to Influence Behaviours

Module 4: Using health surveillance to influence behaviours

The final test of whether your noise controls are working is health surveillance.  This is an essential hearing "MOT" required by law for each individual who is at risk from noise.  For an employer it can identify those areas where risks remain and controls are not working.   For the individual it's a personal, confidential consultation about the health of their hearing.  This module takes you through the legal requirements, how often health surveillance is recommended and the practical aspects of what happens during health surveillance.  It shows how it can be used to check noise controls are robust and reliable and improve the health and safety culture.

On completion of the module you will be able to:

• Explain to colleagues what health surveillance is
• Discuss how useful health surveillance is
• Recognise how health surveillance can influence behaviour and productivity
• Identify who should have health surveillance and how often
