Hearing Conservation Programming & Training


Hearing Loss Prevention Program Management

OSHA has indicated that hearing loss is the #1 occupational illness. As a result, OSHA citations regarding all aspects of the Federal Noise Standard 29 CFR 1910.95 have increasd in recent years, and this trend is expected to continue.

Juler Group Occupational Safety and Industrial Hygiene group is Certified in Occupational Hearing Conservation (CAOHC#465207) and assists clients in:

  1. Protecting Employee Health
  2. Mitigating Employer Risk
  3. Compliance with Federal Regulations
  4. Reducing the Impact of Workman's Compensation Claims

A Hearing Conservation Program, as outlined in 29 CFR 1910.95, is mandated for employers whose employees' noise exposures equal or exceed an 8-Hour time weighted average of 85dBA. Such a program consists of five basic components:

  • Exposure monitoring: plant-wide noise level survey to identify hazardous noise.
  • Audiometric testing: Baseline and Anuual hearing tests (Audiograms), STS determination, and professional supervisor oversight.
  • Hearing protection: HPD with proper Noise Reduction Ratio (NRR) appropriate for employee job and exposure time.
  • Employee training: Education and motivation to be serious about protecting their hearing.
  • Record-keeping: In accordance with OSHA and HIPAA.

Audiometric Testing Management

Regular Audiometric exams, by monaural pure tone air conduction, can indicate whether an employee is experiencing a loss of hearing. Note that hearing test are not a preventive mechanism but an important part of managing the risks of noise induced hearing loss in the workplace. Any changes in a personís hearing levels revealed by audiometric testing should be investigated as to their cause and the need for corrective action. An audiometric testing program may be required for any worker likely to be regularly at risk from exposure to excessive noise levels at work.
