The provider will be up to date with current UK H&S legislation (including current noise and vibration legislation), relevant national and international standards, guidance and best practice documents related to assessment of these hazards. The provider should also be fully conversant with MOD noise and vibration policy and guidance and will have an appreciation of these hazards through previous experience of conducting assessments in military, or similar environments.
