Noise Measurement Training Course

One-Day Noise Awareness Training Courses for H&S Practitioners and Employers

Learn how to measure and manage Noise at Work in just one-day!

Noise awareness training course to learn how to measure noiseOccupational noise is one of the biggest causes of hearing loss and tinnitus in workers today. There is no cure for this “noise-induced hearing loss” but it is preventable by making sure that employers understand the noise regulations, address workplace noise hazards and supply appropriate protection when needed. If you’re not sure how to go about this then this one-day noise awareness course is for you.

Pulsar Instruments™ course, aimed at people responsible for health and safety in their organisations, will help you address the following questions:

  • Do we have a noise at work problem and, if so, who is at risk?
  • How do I comply with the ‘Controlling Noise at Work Regulations 2005?
  • What do I need to measure and why should I calibrate my noise monitoring equipment?
  • How do I apply my measurements to the current action levels and exposure limits?
  • What should I do if we exceed any of these levels or limits?

Practical sessionnoise awareness training courses

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 and how to use software to analyse their results and produce reports.

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 Awareness 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.
