Understanding Occupational Noise Exposure

If you work in an industrial setting, you face potential exposure to damaging noise. OSHA reports that 22 million workers annually encounter hazardous noise levels. Prolonged exposure can lead to irreversible hearing loss, impacting communication and job performance.

The OSHA-Compliant Hearing Conservation Program

To protect your hearing, follow these essential program elements:

  • Noise Monitoring: Regularly measure workplace noise levels using sound level meters, dosimeters, or analyzers. Keep workers informed about their exposure levels.
  • Audiometric Testing: Provide annual hearing exams for workers exposed to noise levels above 85 dBA TWA. Licensed professionals conduct baseline and annual tests, detecting any changes in hearing.
  • Hearing Protection Devices: Supply suitable protectors (earplugs, earmuffs) and ensure proper usage. Train workers on selection, fit, care, and consistent use.
  • Training and Education: Educate workers on noise effects, program benefits, protector maintenance, and audiometric results. Update training as needed.
  • Recordkeeping: Maintain records of noise measurements, audiometric results, and training for at least two years.

Remember, hearing loss is preventable. Prioritize your hearing today for a lifetime of well-being!
