Hearing Conservation




29 CFR 1910.95 Occupational noise exposure and hearing conservation

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) reports that about 10 million workers nationwide incur permanent hearing loss, while nearly 30 million of us are exposed to dangerous levels in our day to day occupations.

OSHA compliance requires that all workers exposed to 8-hour time-weighted average (TWA) noise levels of 85 decibels (dBs) or above receive hearing conservation training annually.

žThis presentation covers the topics of noise exposure at work and away from work:

  •     The effects of noise on hearing

  •     Your right to see noise measurement records and hearing test results
