Almost half of all adults with noise-related hearing loss work in noisy environments.
Workplace hearing conservation programs are a key first line of defense in preserving hearing health.
OSHA requires that workplaces instate a hearing conservation program when an employee’s noise exposure equals or exceeds an 8-hour time-weighted average of 85 decibels.
Hearing conservation programs include exposure monitoring, education and training, providing adequate hearing protectors , and annual occupational hearing testing.
Employers can be responsible for everything from the initial fitting of hearing protectors to coordinating compliant hearing testing. Combining all of these moving parts in one hearing conservation program doesn’t need to be challenging for employers or place an undue burden on employees.
