A second important step in motivating workers is to show them what it’s like to have that hearing loss due to loud noise.

In other words, demonstrate what the future risk will be. We want to fast-forward that employee’s worklife to show them what their hearing will be like in 10, 20, 30 years.. 

Here are a few tools to help motivate workers to protect their hearing on- and off-the-job.

I was talking with a safety manager at one company who said, “We've been administering audiometric testing for 25 years, and now have 25 years’ worth of data that tells us that what we've been doing in our Hearing Conservation Program hasn't worked. We’ve simply documented the progression of hearing loss in our Hearing Conservation Program.”
