Regular exposure to loud noise can affect your hearing. This noise awareness e-learning programme looks at who's at risk, what those risks are, and how to reduce them.
This online course looks at how your ears work to illustrate how delicate they are, how easily they can be damaged, and why noise-damaged hearing loss is permanent. It covers safe noise exposure levels and looks at what can be done to reduce exposure to regular loud noise or to sudden extreme noise. This training programme will help you to recognise the early warning signs of hearing loss, so that something can be done before it's too late. High risk environments for noise exposure include Construction Sites, Factories or Industrial production lines, and some Hospitality venues (nightclubs, live music etc).
