Safety professionals have a universal challenge in protecting the hearing of their noise-exposed employees: How much protection do their employees actually achieve with their ear plugs? U.S. Mobile Health Exams makes it easy to get an accurate, real-world picture of your employees’ hearing protection. Ear plug fit testing provides a formal metric from which one can determine whether employees are receiving optimal protection for their noise environment using their current protection.
|Workers With Significant Shift in Hearing or At-Risk for Further Occupational Hearing Loss||Annual audiogram and follow-up evaluations have documented that the employees have sustained significant shift in hearing or have been identified as being “at-risk” of further hearing loss.||Provide U.S. Mobile Health Exams fit test for workers with a significant shift in hearing to ensure proper selection and fit of earplugs. Review the on-screen training video to model proper fitting techniques. Use this as a teaching moment and determine additional personalized hearing protector tactics for at-risk workers.|
|Earplug Selection||Attenuation provided by earplugs and earmuffs should be appropriate for the noise level and workplace requirements/applications, as well as worker comfort.||Create a group of workers to trial new earplugs and evaluate them against their current earplugs. Run this group through U.S. Mobile Health Exams’ Quick Check to determine if current/new earplugs provide proper attenuation.|
|Standardized Protection Levels||Some companies mandate that employees in specific areas achieve a minimum amount of attenuation.||Hearing Conservation Program manager identifies minimum attenuation required for each area of facility. Using the Quick Check, each employee evaluates their protection with current earplugs.|
