Hearing Conservation And Safety
Many industries have work areas where employees are exposed to harmful noise levels. Nearly 10 million people in the U.S. suffer from some sort of hearing loss caused by loud noise. To protect workers from high levels of noise, OSHA created the Occupational Noise Exposure Standard. The regulation requires employees to be trained on how to protect their hearing while working in areas with harmful noise levels.
