RVT Group have launched two brand new CPD training presentations “An Introduction to Noise Control On Site” and “An Introduction to Fume Control On Site”.
CPD stands for Continued Professional Development, and our course has been fully approved by the nationally recognised training provider CPD UK. Taking part in CPD training ensures that your current qualifications are kept fresh and up to date and allows you to learn new skills and develop your existing ones regardless of occupation, age or education level.
At RVT, we believe it is vital for workers to fully understand occupational health hazards in order to keep themselves and others safe on site. The objectives of these new presentations are to give any worker within the construction industry a clear introduction to on how to effectively control either noise or fume (including exhaust fume) on site.
The latest noise statistics released by HSE show that:
- There are approximately 21,000 people in the UK suffer from tinnitus, deafness and other ear conditions, with a proportion of these caused by excessive noise at work.
- There were 50 new claims of work-related deafness in the UK last year.
- It is also believed that a further 2 million UK employees currently at risk of developing tinnitus and industrial deafness.
Therefore, our latest CPD presentation on noise control teaches about the extensive impact poor noise control can have on your long-term health. You will learn the science behind occupational damage to your hearing, and experience what living with occupational hearing loss is like through an audio demonstration. We then go onto explain how this damage can be prevented. We show how noise can be controlled effectively with the Capture, Contain, Control methodology and give examples of available and compliant specialist noise control equipment based on current best practice.
The fume statistics shown on the HSE website are just as shocking. Currently in the UK:
- Over 75,000 workers are exposed to welding fumes.
- Around 152 deaths per year from fume-related lung cancer.
Also, according to the HSE’s most recent cancer burden report, Diesel Engine Exhaust Emissions (DEEEs) cause an estimated 625 deaths, and over 10,000 workers are exposed to DEEEs.
In our latest CPD presentation about controlling fumes on site, you will learn more about these shocking figures and the devastating effects of fume exposure can have, with specific focuses on welding, solvent and exhaust fumes. As with our noise control CPD, we show you how the Capture, Contain, Control methodology can be effectively applied to fume control and show you examples of available and compliant specialist fume control equipment based on current best practice.
These presentations are suitable for a range of professionals looking to improve their knowledge of these particular on site health hazards, such as Construction Workers, Site Managers, Project Managers, Health and Safety managers, Operations Managers and Maintenance Managers.
We can offer a face-to-face presentation with your team, or we can present via webinar at a time and date of your choice. The presentations can be counted as 1 CPD hour and we are able to provide a certificate of attendance. To book yours today, please give us a call on 0808 178 3286 or email us at email@example.com.
