W503 Noise – Measurement and Effects
This course aims to:
To provide the student with an appreciation of the nature of noise hazards in the workplace and the effects of noise on people. It also details the approach in carrying out noise assessments in the workplace and in the general environment, and to determine the significance of measurement data in relation to the various standards for compliance.
On completing this course successfully the student will be able to:
- Describe the consequences to health and well-being of excessive exposure to noise;
- Understand the measurement (including dosimetry) of noise in relation to current standards;
- Conduct surveys in the workplace to assess risks from noise;
- Advise on the need and means of control including PPE;
- Appreciate and advise on environmental noise assessment and concern;
- Understand current standards and good practice in these fields.
Successful students will receive their award from the British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS).
The BOHS/OHTA training scheme is extremely flexible and allows students to study at their own pace, choosing modules that are most relevant to their interests or circumstances. While the option to ‘accumulate’ a series of 5-day courses to achieve an International Certificate is particularly useful, so too is the option to specialise and to study for a Certificate of Competence in an individual subject.
Moloney and Associates, Acoustic and Environmental Consultants, provide courses for individuals and groups to be trained to Institute of Acoustics (IOA) standards and to BOHS/OHTA international standards. We also provide bespoke training courses for clients and we can generally tailor a training course around your specific requirements. Please contact us through our website and/or by phone to discuss any of your training needs.
