About this Workplace Noise Training Presentation
The objective of this noise training presentation is to promote an understanding of health and safety effects caused by noise, including occupational, domestic and leisure activities. This training will also promote a systematic approach to the management of exposure to excessive noise.
This workplace noise training presentation will familiarise persons with the following:
- What noise is, the range of health effects of noise on hearing, and the social implications of hearing loss.
- Excessive noise exposure and noise assessments in the workplace.
- The general and specific noise management control measures which are necessary to protect them and other persons.
- When and how to use personal hearing protection devices and their proper care and maintenance.
Note: It is important to train personnel on occupational noise management and the risks of excessive noise, as noise-induced hearing loss is permanent.
Excessive can create problems such as tinnitus (constant ringing in the ears), headaches, increased fatigue and loss of concentration. There is an obligation under legislation that workers are not exposed to noise levels that fail to meet the legal limits. All practicable actions must be taken to control the effects of noise or reduce noise emissions at the source.
Whilst a hearing loss of around 5% can be expected over a person’s lifetime, this loss rate is rapidly accelerated when there is exposure to excessive noise and no hearing conservation program is in place.
Managing the Risks of Workplace Noise
Where the noise levels fail to meet the legislative requirements, all practicable action must be taken to control and reduce noise emissions in that area. Methods of noise control are prioritised below according to the hierarchy of risk control options.
Workers who perform the work task should be consulted about the hierarchy of risk control measures outlined below:
- Elimination– removing the occupational noise hazard or its source from the workplace.
- Substitution– swapping to a hazard or source with a lower exposure limit risk level.
- Isolation– removing the hazard from the employee or the employee from the hazard.
- Engineering– physically altering the levels of noise in the work environment.
- Administrative work practices– designing jobs to reduce employee exposure.
- Personal protection equipment– using hearing protectors and devices to protect hearing.
Assessment of Risk
Risk assessment of any controls introduced must be undertaken in consultation between management and the workers directly involved in the work area identified as possessing a loud noise or noise hazard. The results of this assessment should be communicated to all the involved parties.
Noise awareness training should be an integral part of a preventative strategy to further support the hierarchy of controls and regulatory requirements.
