Be aware about the risks associated with noise

Our world is becoming a noisier place and Ethos Environmental offer a number of bespoke training courses to assist individuals to monitor noise at their sites. This can be from a Health and Safety viewpoint, where noise is monitored and occupational exposures are calculated, or from an environmental viewpoint, where noise is assessed in relation to a site’s nearest neighbours.

Undertake your own noise assessment

The noise at work is a course designed for companies who wish to undertake their own noise assessment. The course includes relevant information to allow a person to undertake a full noise assessment in accordance with the Control of Noise at Work Regulations. The syllabus includes work on the physics of sound, the definitions and measurements of units as well as human response to noise, noise exposure levels and work on the assessment of noise risk.

Suitable and sufficient training must be given to all employees including:

  • The nature of risks from exposure to noise
  • The organisational and technical measures taken in order to comply with the requirements of Regulation 6 Elimination or control of exposure to noise at the workplace
  • The exposure limit values and upper and lower exposure action values set out in Regulation 4 Exposure limit values and action values
  • The significant findings of the risk assessment, including any measurements taken, with an explanation of those findings
  • The availability and provision of personal hearing protectors under Regulation 7 Hearing protection and their correct use in accordance with Regulation 8(2) Maintenance and use of equipment


  • Why and how to detect and report signs of hearing damage
  • The entitlement to health surveillance under Regulation 9 and its purposes; and safe working practices to minimise exposure to noise
  • This may be tailored to meet the needs of clients’ own sites and include their own noise data
