Due to low enrollment, this workshop has been cancelled.


Please email coehce@berkeley.edu to be notified about future Occupational Noise, Measurement, and Control workshops.

This hands-on workshop is designed as an introduction to the basic concepts of occupational noise, noise measurement, and noise control. It will provide an overview of noise induced hearing loss (NIHL), identification of hazardous noise exposure, and strategies to reduce and mitigate noise exposure risk. Learners will also explore noise standards, the components of a quality Hearing Conservation Plan (HCP), and learn how to use measurement equipment such as sound level meters and dosimeters. 

Learning Objectives:


At the completion of this activity, the learner will be able to:

  • Discuss the importance of hearing, and the significant health impact associated with NIHL

  • Develop the ability to use one's eyes and ears to identify areas of hazardous noise exposure, and how to use measurement equipment to confirm observations

  • Recognize how basic administrative and engineering noise control techniques can reduce noise exposure below action levels 

  • Describe the components of a quality hearing conservation program, and how those components prevent hearing loss


Target Audience: 

This educational activity is intended for occupational health and safety professionals including registered environmental health specialists, industrial hygienists, certified safety professionals, and others involved in industrial noise, noise control, and noise measurement. This course is designed as an introduction, aimed at the individual who has recently begun to assume responsibilities in the area of noise control, whether direct working responsibility or management responsibility.
