The objective is to provide delegates with a clear understanding of what constitutes “best practice” using the most up-to-date techniques (including case studies that illustrate new and innovative techniques). The workshop is designed to be easily customisable for specific requirements. For example, day 1 can be a detailed management briefing for staff (managers and supervisors) who require a pragmatic overview of what constitutes best practice in site management re noise and vibration. Day 2 can be added for staff who need more detailed information and expertise (planning, safety, environmental, measurement). It is also an opportunity to pick the brains of engineers with decades of experience. Bespoke template documentation (e.g. Section 61) can also be provided.
“Lively and entertaining .. confirmed that a lot of misconception with regard to noise and vibration are evident and that pre-planning and discussion are essential...” Roger Martindale, Estimator
“Well presented in a manner which made it interesting and informative...” Philip Chippendale, Piling Manager
“Well presented course ... course notes clear and thorough to follow...” Ian White, Quality Manager
“Good quality information, presented very well... ”Matthew Rastall, Senior Estimator
The workshop can be heavily customised to suit particular industries or sites and can also include practical project work on new or existing plant or sites. This usually requires prior visit(s) in order to acquire the recordings, photos and technical information for inclusion in the course material.
Location: this is usually run in-house - sometimes the host may invite delegates from other organisations to attend.
Course outline: Health, Safety and Environmental engineers or managers in the construction, demolition and infrastructure industries who need to devise and implement effective noise and vibration management programmes to meet Best Practical means (BPM) noise and vibration management requirements to minimise the likelihood of complaints from local residents.
Learning objectives and outcomes: delegates gain the knowledge and confidence to devise and implement effective noise and vibration management programmes for any site based on current best practice.
Accreditation: INVC attendance certificate
Qualification: 2 or 4 CPD points.
Relevant regulations: BS5228, Section 60, 61, 80 documentation
Delegates are encouraged to send in advance or bring examples of S61 or other documentation as the basis for practical discussion.
The extended version can include:-
While this course is designed for delegates with no background knowledge in site noise and vibration, you are encouraged to forward company documentation in advance as the basis for discussion. You may also find the following tasks helpful.
