Who can be approved as a noise officer?
To be recognised as a noise officer, the applicant must have successfully completed an approved noise officer course, which allows them to carry out noise assessments to Australian Standard AS/NZS 1269.1 Occupational noise management - Measurement and assessment of noise immission and exposure.
There are two training organisations approved by the State Mining Engineer to provide noise officer courses in Western Australia:
- Noise and Vibration Measurement Systems (NVMS)

Australian Standards are available from Standards Australia.
