ear plugs

While not new, earplug fit testing is now at a tipping point. Many companies that had piloted earplug fit testing at one or two facilities are now expanding their programs company-wide, and officially incorporating it into their Hearing Conservation Programs.

 In late 2009, Kenny Dillard, faced seemingly insurmountable environmental challenges to the Hearing Conservation program at a Dalton, Ga., manufacturing facility of Shaw Industries Group, Inc., the world’s largest carpet manufacturer and a leading floor covering provider.

Once again we careen headlong into the holiday season, and about this time many of us reflect on those things for which we are thankful. As this is my first contribution to the HearForever blog, my initial thanks is to you readers for allowing me the opportunity to reach out to you in this way.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Through proven ear plug fit testing technologies, safety managers and workers now have an accurate, real-world picture of hearing protector effectiveness, providing a starting benchmark on which to build their Hearing Conservation practices.

 

First and perhaps foremost, fit testing provides a real-world metric from which one can determine whether your employees are receiving optimal protection for their noise environment, require additional training on how to fit their ear plugs, or need to try a different model.
