Employees who work in noisy environments need to understand the steps they can take to protect their hearing. A comprehensive hearing safety training program provides them with the information they need.
If employees are regularly exposed to noise levels above 85 dB, a monitoring program must be developed and instituted. Employees must also be trained in the potential hazards of noise exposure and appropriate protective measures.
This interactive course takes a practical perspective on noise and hearing conservation. The program provides an understanding of how we hear, how our hearing is damaged and most importantly the steps to prevent hearing loss.
