PPE is an important part of any job and using it to help protect your hearing is no different. Hearing protection is available in many forms, including canal caps, earplugs, and earmuffs, with each type/style having their own "noise reduction rating." It's important to select a type and style that fits comfortably, provides adequate noise reduction, and is compatible with other PPE you're required to wear.
Topics include the types of hearing protection PPE, advantages and disadvantages of the different ear protection, the average of what each type helps protect against, and the best way to choose the PPE that's right for you.
