How can I increase compliance of industrial hearing protection?
T.A.S.C.O. Tip: The list of industrial ear plugs available on the market is virtually endless. The designs, types of materials and options are greater than ever before. However, once you decide which hearing protection muffs and other industrial hearing protection equipment is best for your employees based on their individual work situations, consider browsing the numerous additional products that can enhance employee compliance with these critical safety products. Here are some examples:
- Catch trays, holders and dispensers: Easy access and visibility are critical to compliance and these types of products organize both disposable and other types of ear protection. Catch trays allow boxes of ear plugs to be stored while managing spillover. Multiple-compartment dispensers are also available at reasonable prices.
- Muff options: For those employees who can safely listen to music, high quality AM/FM reception ear protection muffs are a great way to enhance routine jobs without interfering with voice reception.
- Posters: Continual reminders of hearing protection also enhance compliance and may even be required by some standards and regulations.
