Personnel who will be working in the wind industry or related fields, and will carry out their duties in a wind turbine environment, usually in physical contact with a wind turbine or offshore wind structure.
Personnel that perform job functions that have been risk assessed by their employer or workplace, where training according to one or more modules of the BST standard may mitigate the identified risks.
No prerequisites are required to sit this course.
The assessment is taken during the course and is within the expected duration.
The aim of this course is to provide information about the hazards associated with noise in the wind industry. The course will look at the different noise levels, the human ear, hazards associated with noisy environments, and the controls we need to put in place to protect our hearing.
