Course Information

Certificate of Competence in Workplace Noise Assessment

2-6 October 2017 | City Campus, Leeds Beckett University

The Certificate of Competence in Workplace Noise Risk Assessment was originally introduced by the Institute of Acoustics in response to the 1989 Noise at Work Regulations. The Institute works with the Health and Safety Executive to ensure the course content is appropriate and up-to-date, and it insists on high standards from accredited centred such as Leeds Beckett University.

The syllabus covers:
The 20 Control of Noise at Work Regulations
Sound and how it affects human beings
The design of workplace noise surveys
Noise measuring instrumentation
Hearing protection
Noise reduction techniques

The Certificate of Competence in Workplace Noise Assessment is awarded by the Institute to those who complete the five-day course, pass a 2½ hour exam, and successfully complete a practical test. The exam and practical test are normally conducted at the end of the course.

We have been teaching this course since 1992. Participants have included Health and Safety Managers, Occupational Hygienists, consultants and others responsible for the management of noise exposure at work.

A certain amount of calculation is involved, and although this can be done by means of published charts and diagrams, we recommend the use if a scientific calculator (i.e. one with a LOG key). As well as this, participants are recommended to have a copy of the HSE publication Controlling Noise at Work (HSE Books, 2005 £13.95).
