Our workplaces are full of injury and disability causing hazards, and one such hazard is the exposure to high levels of harmful noise. Power tools, air compressors, metal working devices, and countless other machines and tools can generate noise at levels high enough to irreparably damage our hearing. As a result, California companies that expose their employees to high levels of noise are required to have a “Hearing Conservation Program,” which you will learn about here. For such a program to be effective, all employees must understand how excessive noise can damage their hearing as well as how hearing loss can be prevented, which is explored through this on-demand lesson.
There are many delicate and easily damaged components to our inner ears to allow us to perceive sound. To minimize the likelihood of causing permanent harm, noise exposure must be kept to permissible levels. Of course, steps can be taken to reduce noise levels and decrease risks further. This course demonstrates the use of the various types of hearing protection devices suitable for different workplace situations, as well as the importance of audiometric testing.
The importance of your hearing cannot be understated. The ease of which you can protect your hearing cannot be understated as well. Utilize the information presented in this training video and help prevent hearing loss, while complying with CAL/OSHA regulations.
