Noise and Hearing Conservation Introduction

This 30- minute module provides crucial information needed to protect your hearing when working on and off the job.   We start by reviewing the principles of noise before reviewing the "best practices" listed in the OSHA Noise Regulations. Afterwards, we look at various noise hazard control measures that should be considered before resorting to hearing protection. If all else fails, the last portion of this module covers the care, use and selection techniques for various types of hearing protection.
