Noise Awareness Training Online Course Details 

Hearing impairment is a common condition, in fact, it is more common than you may think. It is estimated that in Ireland, 17% of the population has some sort of hearing loss. Data from the UK indicate that approximately 28% of people who are hearing impaired are between 16-60 years old, and 72% are over 60 years old. Each year in Ireland, around 100 babies are born with a significant hearing impairment. 

Around 18,000 people in the UK alone suffer deafness, ringing in the ears or other ear conditions caused by excessive noise at work. However, this damage is preventable if the right steps are taken, but once your hearing has gone, it will not come back. 

This Noise Awareness Training Online Course starts by going into detail about how dangerous noise can be in the workplace, and the primary safety issues you should be aware of. It will take you through some of the simple science, the primary laws that apply and introduce you to noise level limits. It also covers some of the specific health risks and how to avoid them by producing risk assessments, action plans and through the provision of appropriate Personal Protective Equipment. The course will conclude by examining how to provide information and instructions to employees, along with the most professional way to conduct workforce health surveillance. While the legislation here is based on the UK it is derived from European law which is applicable in Ireland.

Target Audience 

This Noise Awareness Training Online course is aimed at people that work in industries where excessive noise is a potential hazard. These include factories, manufacturing environments, entertainment, hospitality, mining, construction and metalworking, to name a few. This course is also suitable for Safety Officers/Advisors, and anyone who has an interest is noise in the workplace. 


One of the key points this course intends to teach is why it is so important to undertake and action points outlined in a noise risk assessment. This may include the use of PPE, limiting how long workers are exposed to noise or several other control measures that must be understood and followed. Understanding the risks and why controls are in place will mean workers are much more likely to adhere to them consistently.
