 A series of free HearForever® by Howard Leight seminars to improve employer hearing conservation programs and prevent noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) on the worksite are scheduled for June in the Marcellus Shale Regions of Ohio, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania.

 
Titled “HearForever®: Best Practices in Effective Hearing Conservation,” the seminars 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 across a variety of industries throughout the Marcellus Shale region. 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:
  • Cleveland, OH, on Monday, June 3, 2013, at the Sheraton Cleveland Airport Hotel, 5300 Riverside Drive.
  • Cincinnati, OH, on Tuesday, June 4, 2013, at the Marriott Cincinnati Hotel Mason, 9664 S Mason Montgomery Rd, Mason, OH.
