Noise at Work Facts and Regulations22nd jun 2011
The answers you need, from noise measurement specialists and more, when you attend Pulsar’s 1 Day Noise Awareness Course: Who is at risk from Noise at Work and how to comply with the noise regulations
Noise awareness training is something which all managers who are responsible for staff working in areas of over 85dB(A) need to be aware of. Pulsar Instruments, a leading noise measurement equipment manufacturer with over 40 years in the field, is offering a one day, face to face course in September. It aims to raise awareness of noise as a risk, increasing safety professionals' knowledge and perception of the risk level as a result and encouraging safer behaviours and correct use of PPE.
Simply, it is the ideal way to increase understanding of the key issues relating to the measurement and control of noise in the workplace including the latest regulations.
The workshop program covers areas such as basic noise theory, the terminology used in noise measurement and also The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 and BS4142 Method for Rating Industrial Noise Affecting Mixed Residential and Industrial Areas'. It also offers an interactive practical session where delegates get the opportunity to make some noise measurements under the guidance of experienced professionals.
Previous delegates have made the following comments:
"The range of content covered is very impressive. My knowledge has been expanded significantly"
"I enjoyed meeting other Health & Safety Officers and having the opportunity to use the Pulsar doseBadge system to establish whether the kit met our perceived requirements"
"The course helped me understand the many abbreviations used regarding noise and how to download my noise measurement data effectively"
The next course will take place at Manchester's Museum of Science and Industry on Tuesday 20th September 2011.
Pulsar Instruments plc also offers bespoke training for interested organisations or individuals who are not able to travel to attend the noise awareness training course at a place and time that are convenient to the customer.
