SOM Basics in OH webinar series 2024 - 6. Noise issues at work


FREE for ALL (please log in on the SOM website first). 


This webinar continues our free-to-access series on "Basics in OH".

Hearing loss and the wider implications of noise on worker health remains a significant occupational challenge. Although we have seen improvements in health surveillance approaches for many work related diseases; hearing checks are still pretty much as we have always known them. Both in clinical practice and within the regulator (HSE) there is recognition that improvements are required.  This webinar will explore updated guidance and advice in this area, why we need to do more and where we could go in terms of preventing noise induced hearing loss for the future!
