Our Approach How We Serve

Measuring Success
Effective programs to prevent hearing loss have as a foundation a noise control plan and a campaign for hearing health awareness.

Characteristics of the successful Hearing Conservation Program include:

  • Reliable sound exposure monitoring
  • Disciplined audiometric testing and evaluation
  • Managed noise control plan
  • Effective worker awareness training
  • Documentation and tracking of key program progress indices

 Our model noise control plan consists of a three-element process:

  • Standardize the procurement of quiet equipment
  • Implement a methodology to define noise control priorities for existing sources 
  • Develop a support system of standard practice to address recurring noise problems and a method of integrating controls into the production environment.

 Hearing Health Awareness acknowledges that hearing loss is:

  • a worker health/wellness issue
  • a safety issue
  • and a productivity issue

A worker’s hearing ability has an effect on the functionality and ultimate performance of that worker. The ability to hear and act on verbal instructions, warning signals, and other communication is a major factor in the worker’s ability to perform.

 

 

 

 

Within the framework of existing Hearing Conservation Programs exists the means to raise worker awareness and promote self protective action.
