Noise Awareness Training

Wurkplace offers Noise Awareness training courses to UK based businesses including Liverpool, Chester and Wrexham.

Around 17,000 people in the UK suffer deafness, ringing in the ears or other ear conditions caused by excessive noise at work. However, this damage is preventable if the right steps are taken but once your hearing has gone it will not come back.

This course starts by going into detail about how dangerous noise can be in the workplace, and the main safety issues you should be aware of. It will take you through some of the simple science, the main laws that apply and introduce you to noise level limits. It also covers some of the specific health risks and how to avoid them by producing risk assessments, action plans and through the provision of appropriate Personal Protective Equipment.

The course will conclude by examining how to provide information and instructions to employees, along with the most professional way to conduct workforce health surveillance.

Target Audience

This course is aimed at people that work in industries where excessive noise is a potential hazard. These include factories, manufacturing environments, entertainment, hospitality, mining, construction and metal working to name a few.

Advantages

One of the key points this course is intended to teach is why it is so important to undertake and action points outlined in a noise risk assessment. This may include the use of PPE, limiting how long workers are exposed to noise or a number of other control measures that must be understood and followed. Understanding the risks and why controls are in place will mean workers are much more likely to consistently adhere to them.

IIRSM approval means that this course meets the rigorous standards of this leading industry body. Online training is flexible, efficient and cost-effective, so candidates can progress through the modules at their own pace, in their own time, making it easy to fit the training around their work and personal life.

Case Study

A very successful construction company named Robert Sheppard Construction were interested in trying our online training courses after being a current retainer client for a couple of months.

Robert Sheppard Construction is a family owned company which has now expanded into 4 different sectors; construction, plant hire, housing development and print. The company was established in 2010 and pride themselves on delivering high quality construction projects to clients all across the North West.

Within our retainer, along with the 24/7 service support, you are allocated 5 free online training courses. After using our HR service for several months, (due to our great service) they were happy to join our Payroll service and have recently started using our Health and Safety Online Training Courses.

Because Robert Sheppard Construction is a construction company, they required training in multiple areas, such as manual handling, abrasive wheels, working at heights and more. Therefore, we worked with Robert Sheppard to create the perfect training package with enough courses to cover all of the employees that required training.

Due to the fact that we provide access to our HR system, we were able to easily navigate and find the employees that needed the said training. From there, we were able to allocate courses easily by using their details to give them a license.

Our relationship with Robert Sheppard Construction has started off very strong and we look forward to working with them for years to come.

“Wurkplace has helped us out in many different sectors of the company and we are already much better off because of this. Their continued support has been very helpful in getting our employees fully qualified and trained, and they are always available whenever we need them. We shall continue to work alongside Wurkplace and use their training courses as the business continues to grow.”
