Hearing damage is a real and unfortunate effect of long-term exposure to loud noise. Noise is a hazard of industrial workers and workers of any occupation who are repeatedly exposed to loud noises. This may include individuals who work in factories, construction sites, mill workers, musicians and airport personnel.
Noise-induced hearing loss is fully preventable when the right precautions are taken from the start. Regular hearing tests to evaluate any early signs of hearing loss, as well as everyday preventative measures such as the use of ear plugs go a long way toward preventing permanent hearing loss.
Some companies choose to meet these requirements independently. However, most companies choose to contract with a hearing conservation company to conduct hearing evaluations, keep records and make sure they comply with all safety standards and meet safety goals.
Failure to test and/or report noise exposure levels and the impact on employees can cost companies thousands in legal fees and federal fines. Hiring a professional or company to make sure they are in complete compliance is worth it in the long run.
