Are your employees free from exposure to noise at work? i.e. from machinery, work processes and loud music? Are they all aware of the risks of noise exposures? Do they know how to reduce the risk and the findings from your risk assessment? Do they know how to properly fit and take care of personal hearing protection that you have issued? If you answered ‘no’ to any of the above then your organisation may be in breach of the Control of Noise at Work Regulations and could be prosecuted or fined or served a notice or be exposed to significant legal claims.The provision of training is not a matter of choice or optional, it is an absolute legal requirement for your organisation.
Aims of the Course
Noise Awareness from Praxis42 aims to help your organisation be legally compliant with the Control of Noise at Work Regulations. It will give your managers and employees an improved awareness of the risks associated with noise, how the risks can be managed which will enable them to contend with the risk in the workplace.
Who is it for?
The course is aimed at all levels of employees who maybe exposed to noise or managing noise in workplaces. Developed by qualified and experienced health, safety and environment professionals who have many years experience in the delivery of training solutions. The result is a high quality training solution that gives the trainee the necessary tools to meet their health, safety and environment obligations and the organisation a level of compliance through an engaging and effective learning medium.
How is it Delivered?
Noise Awareness can be delivered online or through a computer network to each trainee at their desktop or laptop or other device. We can also provide the course to be integrated into a SCORM compliant LMS. The training can be completed at the trainee’s own pace by ‘book marking’ and recording progress and returning to the training at a later stage. In delivering the training in this way the normal costs of training are reduced whilst still achieving the desired awareness and compliance with the organisation’s legal responsibilities.
Compliance Record Keeping Easily Solved
An invaluable feature of Praxis42 eLearning modules is our learning management system called the eSP,our eSolutions Platform. This solves the problem of compliance record keeping by recording all training and completion of courses and making these records available for you to view and manage electronically. No more struggling to find training records should you have a visit from the enforcing agency or an audit. Training certificates can be printed by the trainee once the course is completed and the end assessment successfully passed.
The Noise Awareness course from Praxis42 helps all levels of employees meet the requirements of the ‘Control of Noise at Work Regulations’ by following the Health and Safety Executive’s Guidance note ‘Noise at work – Guidance for employers on the Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005’ (INDG362).the best use of lifting and handling aids?’ (INDG 398).
