Noise and Hearing Protection Certificate Course

One of the most important aspects of health and safety in the workplace is protection from noise hazards. Noise-induced hearing loss is described as the most preventable occupational hazard. In the UK, it is estimated that more than one million workers are exposed to noise hazards on a constant basis, thus increasing the risks of permanent hearing loss, reduction in productivity and increased employee absenteeism.

In the course on noise and hearing protection, you will learn about the following topics:

  • The negative impacts of loud noise levels on health and wellbeing and the different types of noise, including variable, impulse, impact and continuous. You will also learn about Britain’s noise control laws and how employers are legally responsible for noise reduction measures in the workplace.
  • How employers should consider regular risk assessments that help identify sources and the number of people exposed to noise hazards. You will also learn the industrial sectors that are known for higher noise hazard levels.
  • How elimination and isolation of noise hazards help reduce noise and the important factors such as choosing the right places for machinery, checking for noise emission levels, fixing silencers and grouping together of machinery producing equivalent sounds.
  • How the implementation of administrative controls such as planning activities outside of regular shift hours or outsourcing noise-producing activities to areas situated further away help noise reduction
  • The different types of hearing protectors, including earmuffs and earplugs that help protect workers from noise hazards at work.

Important benefits of learning about noise reduction and hearing protection:

  • Employers can ensure compliance with UK’s health and safety laws.

Eye Safety in the Workplace Certificate Course

British laws require employers and companies to uphold safety regulations and safeguard their workers from injuries and accidents in the workplace. Eye accidents are very common in the workplace, but most can be prevented with the help of implementation of control measures, use of protective equipment and care. Most workers tend to be unaware of the risks associated with exposure to eye safety hazards and the adverse consequences that can arise. Eye injuries often result in permanent or temporary blindness with the loss of one or more eye functions.

The course on “Eye Safety in the Workplace” explains the following topics in detail:-

  • The importance of maintenance of protective equipment and control measures in order to minimise or eliminate risks and hazards.
  • How to protect workers from chemical splashes and what do in case of emergencies. You will also learn about how acidic and alkaline substances damage the eye in different ways.
  • Exposure to radiation hazards from thermal, infrared, UV and bright light sources and how to protect workers from the risks.
  • How staring at the computer for prolonged periods can lead to strain, headaches and blurred vision. You will also learn different techniques that help reduce eye strain.
  • The types of protective eye equipment and their functions

The benefits of studying this course are described below:-

  • You are in a better position to identify the different hazards that exist in your workplace.
  • Employers can invest in the right safety equipment to safeguard their employees from injury.
  • Businesses can upgrade prevention techniques, storage and maintenance of protective equipment for improved accident control.
  • You can educate and update your employees on the risks and hazards associated with eye injuries.

Noise and Hearing Protection Certificate Course

One of the most important aspects of health and safety in the workplace is protection from noise hazards. Noise-induced hearing loss is described as the most preventable occupational hazard. In the UK, it is estimated that more than one million workers are exposed to noise hazards on a constant basis, thus increasing the risks of permanent hearing loss, reduction in productivity and increased employee absenteeism.

In the course on noise and hearing protection, you will learn about the following topics:

  • The negative impacts of loud noise levels on health and wellbeing and the different types of noise, including variable, impulse, impact and continuous. You will also learn about Britain’s noise control laws and how employers are legally responsible for noise reduction measures in the workplace.
  • How employers should consider regular risk assessments that help identify sources and the number of people exposed to noise hazards. You will also learn the industrial sectors that are known for higher noise hazard levels.
  • How elimination and isolation of noise hazards help reduce noise and the important factors such as choosing the right places for machinery, checking for noise emission levels, fixing silencers and grouping together of machinery producing equivalent sounds.
  • How the implementation of administrative controls such as planning activities outside of regular shift hours or outsourcing noise-producing activities to areas situated further away help noise reduction
  • The different types of hearing protectors, including earmuffs and earplugs that help protect workers from noise hazards at work.

Important benefits of learning about noise reduction and hearing protection:

  • Employers can ensure compliance with UK’s health and safety laws.
  • You have the opportunity to understand how exposure to noise hazards can result in health risks.
  • Employers can consider investing in personal protective equipment, such as specialised earmuffs and earplugs that are suitable to the conditions at work
