Event description

Description

Workplace noise is one of the most widespread health hazards. Over 20 million workers are exposed to high levels of noise, and risk hearing loss. Since this loss is painless, it creeps up on people who are often unaware of just how much thier hearing has gone away. It's permanent, there is no cure for noise induced hearing loss. It can, however, be prevented.

The Course Will Cover

  • An outline of OSHA noise requirements
  • Noise and how it damages the ear.
  • Types of hearing protection,
  • How to evaluate if hearing protection is suitable for a particular setting.
