September 12, 2008, Newsletter Issue #133: Noise Monitoring Program

Tip of the Week

As outlined in the regulations set forth by the OSHA, employers are required to have a hearing loss prevention program in place for employees who spend the average work day in a setting of over 85 dB of noise.

A noise monitoring program consists of many key areas such as letting employees know they will be working in a high decibel noise area, training employees to use hearing protection, and providing them concrete ways to reduce their risk of hearing loss.

Any noise monitoring program must also provide ways for employees to have their hearing tested on a frequent basis. Another part of this program involves documentation. Documentation is essential to identify areas where noise problems exist, or review previous results of an employee's hearing test.
