Noise Awareness

Duration: 1 hour
Cost: £15+VAT

This online Noise Awareness training will make you aware of the hazards posed by high levels of noise in the workplace and identifies the measures that can be taken to help you to avoid hearing damage.

Employers are required by law to take reasonable steps to safeguard the health and safety of all employees. This includes raising awareness about the hazards related to noise, and outlining what can be done to minimise risk.

The approximate duration of this training is 1 hour.

Who is it for?

This training is suitable for anyone who works in an industry that exposes them to high levels of noise.

The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 states that "Suitable and sufficient information and training (must be provided) for employees, such that work equipment may be used correctly, in order to minimise their exposure to noise."

  • The potential short term and long term effects on hearing of exposure to loud noise.
  • How excessive levels of noise can lead to psychological stress and how this can impact life at work and at home.
  • Some early signs of noise-induced hearing loss.

Employer and employee responsibilities

  • Legislation that aims to protect people from harmful levels of noise in the workplace.
  • Employer and employee responsibilities with regard to hearing protection.
  • When your employer should conduct a risk assessment and what that risk assessment will cover.
  • How an employer can estimate the levels of noise that employees are exposed to.

How the ear works

  • The structure of the ear.
  • How the ear processes sound.
  • How loud sounds can cause permanent damage to your ear.

How loud is too loud?

  • How sound is measured.
  • What sounds are typically comfortable to hear.
  • What lower and upper exposure action values are and what effects they have on your safety at work.
  • When hearing protection and health surveillance must be provided.

Controlling noise levels in the workplace

  • What is meant by a hierarchy of noise controls and how it contributes to drawing up a prioritised noise-control action plan.
  • Engineering controls and how they can help reduce noise levels.
  • When hearing protection PPE should and should not be used.


The assessment is generated from question banks so that the questions change each time a candidate takes the assessment – making the training suitable for initial and refresher training.

There is no limit on the number of attempts at the assessment and informative feedback is given so candidates can learn from their incorrect responses.
