HEARING CONSERVATION AND SERVICES TO INDUSTRY
OSHA’s Regulation on Occupational Noise Exposure (29 CFR 1910.95) mandates an effective hearing conservation program for employees exposed to high levels of noise. Worker’s compensation claims for hearing loss make employer and employee protection essential.
Noise is one of the few preventable sources of hearing loss, and yet, in the United States, it is second only to aging. In industry, hearing loss is one of the leading occupational diseases, both in prevalence and potential cost.
