This Video On Demand details the three-part hearing conservation program. The program consists of testing, training, and protection to help workers eliminate or reduce their risk of hearing loss. This program is important in combating hearing loss not only at work, but at home as well.
The video includes a detailed illustration of how sound waves are translated in the ears and what factors contribute to hearing loss. Workers learn how the intensity of a loud sound as well as frequent exposure can contribute to hearing loss. Temporary hearing loss can last up to fourteen hours, and when exposed to 85 to 95 decibels (dB) of sound permanent hearing loss may occur. Both short and long term hearing loss can be detrimental and one should be proactive when protecting their hearing.
This training provides different solutions to aid in noise reduction and hearing conservation. One inexpensive and easy technique is replacing loose or vibrating parts on the machines. One can protect their hearing by investing in ear protection equipment such as canal caps, ear muffs, and soft ear plugs. Cleaning, maintenance, and proper usage of ear protection is demonstrated. The training debunks common hearing conservation myths, such as using cotton balls to protect your hearing (which does not work). Encourage workers to understand and appreciate your hearing conservation program with this online training video.
