The most common workplace injury is hearing loss…and it’s not just about having to say “what” or “can you repeat that”. Auditory damage due to prolonged exposure to loud noises can also cause noise sensitivity that can be debilitating and, just like hearing loss, is irreversible.
Check out our new informational guide on respiratory protection! Here you will find information on OSHA required fit testing, how to properly wear your respirator, and the dos and don’ts of facial hair.
How Much Noise is Too Much?
Our Guide to Hearing will show you how much noise is too much. Properly fitting hearing protection can greatly decrease the risk of hearing loss due to environmental noise. Take a look and find out how to protect your hearing and don’t be left saying “Huh?”, “What?”, “Can you repeat that?”
