Take control of the noise in your workplace with our Noise at Work Training Course, perfect for employers and employees responsible for Health and Safety.
Occupational Noise (Noise at Work) is one of the biggest causes of hearing loss and tinnitus in workers today. There is no cure for ‘noise-induced hearing loss’ (NIHL), but it can be prevented if employers address workplace noise hazards and supply appropriate protection when needed.
Knowing how to complete a noise risk assessment, measure noise levels, and provide noise control solutions and appropriate hearing protection is vital to protecting your employees from NIHL and your business from NIHL claims.

Why is it important to measure noise at work?
The Control of Noise at Work Regulations require employers to carry out workplace noise monitoring as an essential part of their Health and Safety strategy to help combat the effects of workplace noise pollution on employees.
One in six of the British population suffers from hearing loss. Unfortunately, future projections estimate that by the end of 2031, there will be 14.5 million people living with hearing loss in the UK.*
Exposure to noise at work can cause irreversible hearing damage. Noise-Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) is a permanent type of hearing loss caused by prolonged exposure to high noise levels, and the most common cause of NIHL is noise at work.
