Honeywell Experts Host Free Hearing Conservation Seminars in British Columbia to Help Prevent Noise-Induced Hearing Loss

Share/Save

Noise-induced hearing loss might well be the world’s most common, and preventable, occupational injury. Hearing conservation experts from Honeywell will host free hearing conservation seminars in two cities in British Columbia, Canada— Prince George on Sept. 30 and Kamloops on Oct. 2 — to show how, with the proper education, motivation, and protection, it can also be 100% preventable.

Titled “Howard Leight® HearForever™: Best Practices in Effective Hearing Conservation,” the half-day, morning seminars will help safety professionals improve their workplace hearing conservation programs with practical information on noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL), and the latest research and technologies.

The seminars are approved for continuing education credit by the ABIH (American Board of Industrial Hygiene).

Topics will include:

      Basics of noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL);
      Key elements of an effective hearing conservation program;
      Impending changes to the noise reduction rating (NRR) and how it impacts participants’ hearing conservation programs;
      Case studies from successful hearing conservation programs;
      Employee motivation and training techniques and resources;
      Reducing costs for hearing loss.
 

The two half-day seminars will take place from 9 a.m. to noon in the two cities:

      Prince George, BC, on Monday, Sept. 30, at the Sandman Signature Hotel, 2990 Recplace Drive (link to Google maps)
      Kamloops, BC on Wednesday, Oct. 2, at the Coast Kamloops Hotel and Conference Center, 1250 Rogers Way (link to Google maps)
 
The sessions will be led by Brad Witt, MA, CCC-A, director of Hearing Conservation, Honeywell Safety Products, the global provider of Howard Leight hearing protection solutions and founder of the HearForever initiative. He holds a B.S. in Communication Disorders from Brigham Young University, and an M.A. in Audiology from Northwestern University. For 14 years, he managed a hearing conservation practice in California, providing OSHA-standard services at 175 locations. He has served as president of the National Hearing Conservation Association (NHCA) and has presented more than 250 hearing conservation seminars on behalf of Howard Leight over the past eight years in 18 countries.
 
Attendees receive free training materials, literature, and hearing protection samples. They also will participate in hands-on demonstrations of new hearing conservation technologies, including the Howard Leight VeriPRO® fit-testing system for measuring earplug fit, and the Honeywell QUIETPRO® advanced in-ear communication system for high noise environments.
