This certificate of competency in noise-at-work training course is delivered by practicing consultant engineers, not academics or perpetual trainers. They have both extensive teaching expertise and many years of experience in the field, making the training highly practical and effective with a multimedia and case study content and style ideally suited to busy professionals.
The IOSH-accredited noise competency course has been developed by us to be a practical, enjoyable and non-academic way of becoming a competent person under the Noise at Work Regulations 2005. It will save you time and money by showing you how to meet all the regulatory requirements as efficiently and practically as possible – whatever your industry. We can even provide you with comprehensive template report documentation for your own use.
Update: revise procedures + intelligent PPE.
Real-world PPE performance: dramatically worse than generally assumed (guaranteeing adequate protection above c 90dB(A) is very difficult).
Update: reduce noise at source
Use self-financing engineering noise control techniques to cut risk at source. 3dB, 5dB and 10dB reductions reduce risk by 50%, 70% and 90%. 95dB(A) is half the risk of 98dB(A). Use online resources to find out if your noise problem has already been solved.
Update: audiometry that works
Traditional audiometry is of limited use as it simply catalogues failures in risk reduction strategies years after the event. The newer otoacoustic emission (OAE) test detects the onset of damage early enough to be useful as a risk management tool.
Many organisations have realised the value in training their health and safety staff to undertake noise risk assessments in-house. The noise competency course is IOSH accredited, delegates are awarded certification on successful (open book) exam and practical work completion.
“…made noise measurement & calculations easy and both theoretical and practical sessions were superb… the best course I’ve ever been on.” Sean O’Sullivan : H&S Manager, Harris Ireland
"Previously to this course I had no idea how much about noise I did not know. This course fixed that and I feel confident to carry our assessments and discuss" Patrick Smith, H&S Manager, Babcock International
Successful completion of the noise competency course (including passing both an open book theory and a practical exam) provides delegates with an IOSH/INVC certificate as to their competency in being able to:
This is based on the requirements of the Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005, updated to include the latest risk reduction technologies and strategies.
Location: public courses take place at venues throughout the UK including Newcastle, Swindon & Leicester.
Course outline: designed for Health and Safety Officers, managers and anyone wishing to understand/implement noise measurement, management and risk control in accordance with best practice under the current regulations.
Learning objectives and outcomes: delegates gain the knowledge and confidence to identify their organisation’s obligations under the regulations, assess noise risks and to develop, put in place and manage an effective noise risk management plan.
Accreditation: Fully IOSH certificate.
Qualification: 2.5 hour open book written exam and 0.5 hour closed book multiple choice exam leading to IOSH certificate, CPD points.
Relevant regulations: The Control of Noise at Work Regulations (CoNAWR) 2005.
We can also run these courses 'in-house' at your chosen location. Contact us to find out more.
