Hearing Protection

This category includes Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) used to protect operators’ hearing, from both short-term hazards and long-term hearing loss. Hearing protectors must reduce the decibel level of workplace noise to within acceptable limits determined by OSHA. Along with PPE, if employees are exposed to workplaces with ambient noise at or above 85 decibels for more than eight hours, regular hearing tests conducted by professionals are also required. Hearing protection devices include single-use earplugs that self-form to fit in the ear, preformed or molded earplugs that are individually fitted to the user, and earmuff-style protectors that form a perfect seal around the operator’s ear.
