Noise Awareness Training Courses 2017
Due to the huge success of our Noise Awareness training course programme in 2016, Pulsar Instruments Plc are delighted to offer a brand new series of Noise Awareness Training Courses hosted at a variety of venues throughout the UK for 2017.
This popular One Day Noise Awareness Course (now in its tenth year) focuses on key facts and will give delegates from any background an understanding of the issues relating to the legislation, measurement and control of noise in their workplace. It is also suitable as a ‘refresher course’ for customers who may not have used their noise measuring equipment for some time and are seeking to carry out occupational noise assessments.
Do any of the following questions relate to you? We have the answers and so will you when you attend our course!
- How can I determine whether we have a noise problem and, if so, who is at risk?
- How do I comply with the ‘Controlling Noise in the Workplace’ regulations?
- 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 legal limits?
- What should I do if we exceed any of these levels or limits?
We have selected a number of venues that will provide a stimulating environment for delegates such as the National Space Centre in Leicester and the National Railway Museum in York.
Refreshments and a buffet lunch are provided along with comprehensive written reference materials, certificate of attendance and loan of noise measurement instruments such as a Pulsar sound level meter or personal noise dosemeters for the practical session in the afternoon. Details of overnight hotel accommodation can be forwarded on request to interested parties.
