Protect the Soundtrack to Your Life: Hearing Protection
The Occupational Health & Safety Administration (OSHA) reports around 30 million U.S. workers are exposed to hazardous workplace noise every year. This means almost 10% of the U.S. population (based on U.S. Census Bureau) should be using hearing protection every workday at the very least to help prevent permanent hearing loss.
It’s important for impacted workers to understand how the ear functions, how much noise is acceptable, how to determine if your workplace is too noisy and how to use proper hearing protection. Each of the following video training programs approach the topic of hearing conservation slightly different, but the bottom line is you must know when and how to use proper hearing protection.
