Hearing is a key sense that you must protect. Whether you operate a small team working in the countryside, or a large industrial process, you need to be aware of which noises apply to your work and how to reduce the risks. Take this course to develop a comprehensive idea of the actions you can take to protect your employees and ensure that the day of having to wear hearing aids or the onset of tinnitus doesn’t arrive prematurely.
This course provides guidance to employers on their responsibilities around noise in the workplace. It will help you recognise the risks, explain your duties as an employer and assess the workplace for hazards relating to noise. Not doing so could have consequences to your employees’ wellbeing, so take action now to reduce levels of noise. We’ll explain how.
We all exceed the limit on noise. Whether it’s listening to loud headphones, going to the cinema, or getting a train that makes that squeaky noise on the tracks every day because it never gets oiled. Living with noise and knowing that we may need a hearing aid one day is something we all accept as normal.
But noise can be dangerous, especially at work. And employers have a duty of care to look after their employees’ health. This course will teach you what the risks of noise at work are and what action you should take to protect your staff.
It’s not easy to explain a concept such as noise without damaging your hearing ourselves. So, we did what any of us would have done, we used our own experiences. Who hasn’t sat somewhere and been annoyed by the sounds around them? Speaking from experience, coupled with intense research from credible sources led us to create a course which is not only accurate, but relatable.
