Abstract

This work presents a web portal for telematic training in work-related risk prevention: noise at work and machine vibrations. Training in Work-related Risk Prevention, especially in the area of Industrial Hygiene, has a practical laboratory component, which is fundamental for a correct preparation of prevention technicians so that they can become acquainted with the field equipment that they have to use in risk evaluation, its configuration, principal parts and handling; everything from its calibration to its application in measuring as a function of the job’s conditions, always within the correct methodological application dictated by the national and international norms which regulate these field applications. This signifies important time expenditure for specialist teachers and in field equipment for the users being trained. With virtual laboratories containing the web application developed it is aimed to complement experimental laboratory training, with simulative tools which provide the knowledge and the practical handling of the equipment under the most real conditions possible, thus considerably reducing the number of laboratory hours necessary. It is a matter of having a catalogue of virtual laboratories with a free and easy access, the one in the first stage being specifically that corresponding to noise at work.
