Occupational Noise Exposure

The objective of Occupational Noise Exposure training is to train employees to protect and conserve their hearing in noisy work environments. Employees who are exposed to a noise level at or above an 8-hour time-weighted average of 85 decibels (dB) should receive training in hearing conservation. This training program is designed to satisfy, in whole or in part, the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.95(k).

Upon successful completion of training, trainees will demonstrate an understanding of:

  • The effects of noise on hearing
  • The areas in your facility where hearing protection is required
  • The purpose of hearing protectors, the various types available, and their use
  • The advantages, disadvantages, and attenuation of the various types of hearing protectors available
  • The ability to properly select, fit, use, and maintain the various hearing protectors available to employees
  • The purpose of audiometric testing and how employees can obtain their test results
  • The location and availability of your company's written Hearing Conservation Program and OSHA standard
