Free Noise Hazards Webinar on September 2nd
Exposures to noise hazards take a tremendous toll on our country. Approximately 22 million workers are exposed to harmful noise, with 1.7 million over the age of 50 suffering from significant hearing loss. However, there is good news! It is absolutely possible to avoid exposure to harmful noise and maintain great hearing capabilities. Iowa State University offers a free training program that will prepare you to do just that: recognize, understand, and control exposure to noise hazards.
This training is designed for all levels of employees that work in manufacturing and construction environments. Supervisors and safety personnel should participate in this basic session before proceeding to the advanced session.
This webinar has two sessions:
Fundamentals: a 3.5 hours introduction noise and providing basic controls. Participants will receive a certificate of completion of Workplace Noise Hazard Training.
Advanced: an additional two hours session that introduces risk assessment practices and advanced noise hazards controls. Participants will receive a card, certifying Completion of Risk Assessment for Noise Hazards in the workplace.
Training will start at 8:30 AM.
This training is designed for all levels of employees that work in manufacturing and construction environments.
