Free HearForever Seminars Promoting Best Practices in Workplace Hearing Conservation are set for April in North Dakota & Montana


A series of free HearForever® by Howard Leight seminars to help safety professionals improve their hearing conservation programs and prevent noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) in the workplace will be presented during April in North Dakota and Montana.

The seminars, titled “HearForever®: Best Practices in Effective Hearing Conservation,” will provide the latest information on hearing loss prevention, how to create a culture of safety, and the latest research, technologies, and solutions to help companies improve their hearing conservation programs — and their bottom line.
Noise-induced hearing loss has been described as the world’s most prevalent occupational injury,” said Hearing Conservation Manager Theresa Y. Schulz, PhD., Lt. Col. USAF (Retired), of Honeywell Safety Products, who will lead the seminar. “But, with the proper education, motivation, and protection, it’s also 100% preventable.”
The half-day seminar —approved for continuing education credit by ABIH (American Board of Industrial Hygiene) — is designed for industrial hygienists, occupational health and safety professionals, audiologists, trainers, occupational nurses, and liability and risk management professionals. Topics will include:
      Basics of Noise-Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL)
      Key Elements of an Effective Hearing Conservation Program
      How to Use Leading Indicators in a Hearing Conservation Program to Stop Hearing Loss
      Case Studies from Successful Hearing Conservation Programs
      Employee Motivation and Training Techniques/Resources
      Reducing Costs for Hearing Loss
The seminar will take place from 9 a.m. to Noon at the following locations:
  • Billings, MT, on Monday, April 22, 2013, at the Hilton Garden Inn, 2465 Grant Rd.
  • Dickinson, ND, on Tuesday, April 23, 2013, at the Ramada Grand Dakota Lodge, 532 15th Street West
