Topic: “CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?” Learn how to evaluate, recognize and control noise hazards found in the workplace to help prevent hearing loss to your employees.
Occupational noise induced hearing loss is preventable, but is unfortunately among the most common work related illnesses throughout all industries. According to the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), approximately 17% of the US work force (22 million) are exposed to hazardous noise and 19% (4.2 million) of these noise exposed workers have hearing loss. By knowing how to properly evaluate, recognize, and control occupational noise, we as safety professionals will be able to help prevent occupational noise induced hearing loss for our workers.
