Continuing professional development- Keep the noise down

Don’t go on drumming up trouble for yourself — get your knowledge on noise at work refreshed and extended on an IOSH Continuing Professional Development course next month.

‘Noise at work — risk assessment update’ is a course for health and safety professionals and anyone involved in implementing noise-management programmes. To go on the course you will need to have completed ‘Noise at work — risk assessment and management’, a similar course, or have at least one year’s experience as a noise assessor.

Run by David James and Tim French, the course takes place on 15 and 16 April. David has more than 30 years’ experience in noise and vibration engineering. Tim has previously designed loudspeakers, sonar transducers and noise-control products.

The course includes a general review of your previous noise-assessment experiences, a review and critique of assessment reports, reviews of software, measurement and analysis techniques and basic calculations, and an opportunity to discuss issues that you have faced in managing noise in the workplace.

The course includes evening work, as well as a written assessment and practical test. It costs £458.25 for IOSH members and £517 for non-members.
