Noise at Work Training Course
Noise at Work (also known as occupational noise), is one of the biggest causes of hearing loss and tinnitus in workers today. Carrying out noise risk assessments, measuring noise levels, providing suitable noise control solutions and appropriate protection is, therefore, a vital function for every Health and Safety Officer.
Find out how to measure noise and make sense of the Noise at Work Regulations in our One-day Noise Awareness Course.
Who should attend this course and why

The practical part of the course gives delegates a clear revision of noise terminology and the use of Sound Level Meters and Personal Noise Dosemeters.
Delegates can take a variety of measurements with their own sound level meters or those loaned by Pulsar Instruments on the day.
Existing Pulsar customers can attend a further session on that day where they will be given detailed guidance on the correct use of their own instrumentation and how to interpret the results using the Pulsar noise reporting software.
Our One Day Noise at Work Training Course (now in its 11th year) focuses on key facts and gives delegates from any background an understanding of the issues relating to the legislation, measurement and control of noise in their workplace. This course is suitable for Health and Safety people new to noise assessments and as a ‘refresher’ for customers who may not have used their noise measuring equipment for some time.

K Lynch - EHS Leader
Very good update and the opportunity to clarify noise assessment requirements. (Delegate on the York Noise Awareness Course in September 2015).
R Mohan - Technical Director
Excellent course delivered by a very knowledgeable tutor. The course gave a really good understanding of workplace noise awareness - excellent course content.
E Sinclair - HSE Manager
Attended the course at the National Space Centre in June 2015. Very straighforward and to the point. Good value for money! Today has made me review the way I am going to conduct my noise assessments. Advice was given on where to find more information and how to use my noise meter.
K Buglass - H&S officer
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank your instructor Mr. Graham Ellicott for the professional and friendy manner in which he presented the course. I am sure all of the delegates including myself fully understood the course contents and its importance.
I very much appreciate your assistance.
