Though the language of OSHA’s Occupational Noise Standard (29 CFR 1910.95) may appear convoluted, its dictates are rather straightforward: employers who have work areas with noise levels above 85 dBA TWA (Time Weighted Average) must implement a Hearing Conservation Program. Workers exposed to those levels must undergo annual audiograms; hearing protectors must be made available when noise reaches 85 dBA and are required to be worn at 90 dBA. And while implementing an OSHA-approved Hearing Conservation Program may appear complicated, it is not as daunting as it seems. There are a number of “best practices” safety managers can employ that not only help ensure compliance with regulations, but also promote positive employee hearing safety.
