Product Line: MARCOM Regulatory Compliance Series
MARCOM's "Hearing Conservation and Safety" Employee Booklet has been created specifically to involve employees in the process of understanding noise hazards and to help facilities in fulfilling the OSHA Occupational Noise Exposure and Hearing Protection Standard (29 CFR,1910.95) training requirements. The Booklet shows employees why they should pay attention to "noise" hazards, and how they can protect themselves from hearing injuries. Everywhere we go, we encounter noise. And if this noise is loud enough, or has certain characteristics, it can cause damage to our hearing... often permanently. Millions of Americans have a measurable hearing loss, most often caused by "on-the-job" injuries. Yet many employees don't realize that not only can hearing problems affect their work, they can alter their personal lives dramatically as well. Areas covered in the booklet include how our ears "work", types of hearing damage/loss, common causes of hearing damage/loss, potential effects of hearing damage, noise avoidance and hearing safety practices, selection and use of personal protective equipment, and more. The employee booklet features text, illustrations, and a quiz, and is 16 pages in length. Booklets are available in packages of 15.
