There are many factors involved when selecting appropriate hearing protector which may include type and level of noise you want to reduce (continuous or impulse), comfort, compatibility with other PPE, situational awareness and communication between you and co-workers. Choosing the right hearing protection can be a difficult task.
Just as important as selection, performing an effective fit validation test will help ensure the chosen hearing protector provides effective acoustic seal and offers appropriate level of protection and prevent the development of noise induced hearing loss (NIHL) thus helping improve employer's safety and health compliance.
Presented by 3M’s industry leading experts, this webinar will outline factors involved in selecting hearing protection that’s best suited for the individual and the work environment. It will also discuss fit testing and the different methods for estimating sound level under the hearing protector including SNR, HML and Octave Band.
