Noise and Vibration Training

Noise Competent Person, NEMS and HAVS training and other courses

Your challenge

With increasingly stringent legislation and a host of obligations placed on operators, it is vital to ensure the competence of your teams when it comes to understanding the impact of noise and vibration. Training from an independent provider can support in-house teams in satisfying the requirements of the 2005 Control of Vibration at Work Regulations (CoVAWR) and 2005 Control of Noise at Work Regulations (CoNAWR).

How Bureau Veritas supports you

We offer a range of noise and vibration training courses run by experienced and current practitioners in the noise and vibration field. Occupational noise and vibration training courses are usually run from our training centre in Glasgow but alternative arrangements are possible.

Our training courses include open courses or individual delivery for your organisations, subject to a minimum number of trainees.  

Noise at Work Competency Training 

A three-day course inclusive of both classroom time and a practical session at industrial facilities. Topics include the fundamentals and basics of acoustics and sound, through to the requirements and implementation of the 2005 Control of Noise at Work Regulations (CoNAWR).  

Includes a half-day practical session at industrial facilities with the use of a sound level meter and survey requirement. The measured noise levels will then be used to prepare a noise assessment, in line with the Control of Noise at Work Regulations.

An additional one-day course can be added as a completion to the above training to gain competency in the use of Bureau Veritas’ Noise Exposure Management System (NEMS). HAVS Training

A one-day course covering a range of topics from practical HAVS management through to the requirements and implementation of the 2005 Control of Vibration at Work Regulations (CoVAWR).  

Following the course it is expected that the delegates will be able to operate an on-site hand arm vibration management programme, understand and, if necessary, measure hand arm vibration levels, as we well as assess and plan jobs to control HAVS risks. They should also be able to communicate information about HAVS risk and good practice to tool users.

Pipework Vibration Awareness Training

The Pipework Vibration Awareness Training courses are usually aimed at integrity and maintenance engineers working on site and delivered at the client's premises.

Consists of a half-day session aimed at developing a trained eye for possible pipework vibration induced hazards with particular attention to Small Bore Connections (SBCs).  The course is usually carried out by a vibration engineer along with other site vibration services and as such is tailored to the specific site by collecting pictures and examples of both good and bad practice.
