Plan to join us for a free educational opportunity...OSHA Hearing Conservation Programs: Assessment, Monitoring, and Implementation
An effective hearing conservation program can prevent hearing loss, improve employee morale and a general feeling of well-being, increase quality of production, and reduce the incidence of stress-related disease.
Every year, approximately 30 million people in the United States are occupationally exposed to hazardous noise. Noise-related hearing loss has been listed as one of the most prevalent occupational health concerns in the United States for more than 25 years. Thousands of workers every year suffer from preventable hearing loss due to high workplace noise levels. Since 2004, the Bureau of Labor Statistics has reported that nearly 125,000 workers have suffered significant, permanent hearing loss. In 2009 alone, BLS reported more than 21,000 hearing loss cases.
Join us for an opportunity to learn how to combat one of the most avoidable OSHA Recordable injuries in industry today. Learn how to start and maintain a top notch hearing conservation program from an expert in the field.
