NCD - Noise Control Design to Implementation


Employers have a duty of care to provide workplaces that, so far as is practical, do not expose employees to noise hazards.

Manufacturers, importers and suppliers also have a duty of care to ensure that plant is designed and constructed so that its noise emission is As Low As Reasonably Practicable (ALARP) when properly installed and used.

Having a noise management system does not necessarily guarantee a reduction in noise exposure levels. This can only be achieved by a Noise Control Plan that sets out specific actions to be carried out according to a schedule by people who are accountable for measurable improvements.

An effective noise control plan needs to demonstrate due diligence and that a strategy to reduce noise exposure is in place and is being actioned.

SVT Training’s course will show you how to develop a cost effective noise control plan that will actually reduce occupational noise exposure.
