Noise - Occupational Noise Control Workshop

ETC Venues - Manchester
11 Portland Street
Manchester
M1 3HU

Introduction

HSE Training are offering a 1 day workshop that demonstrates how most noise problems can be dealt with quickly and cheaply using simple engineering solutions, removing reliance on ineffective hearing protection.

The increasing burden of hearing damage on individuals and businesses through insurance claims shows that the current approach to noise management is failing. HSE research has shown that hearing protection is very often ineffective and we have developed this workshop to showcase more practical engineering solutions.

"I found the course inspirational and it's certainly one of the best I have been on. Peter and yourself (Chris) have given me plenty to think about and I am already halfway to solving our acoustic shock issue."
"Good, clear, concise, practical advice."
"Great delivery by knowledgeable trainers. Concepts and ideas to take-away and implement."

The workshop includes detailed, easily installed solutions to the top 10 most common noise problems that can actually enhance productivity and reduce operating costs.

Gain practical knowledge that includes:-

  • HSE attitude to noise control and the regulatory requirements
  • Using conventional acoustic materials and control measures
  • How to evaluate and cost the noise control options in their workplaces
  • Applying low cost engineering noise control techniques on their sites
  • Acquiring detailed solutions to the 10 most common noise problems
  • Details of free online noise control resources
