The National Institute for Occupational Health and Safety reports that nearly 22 million Americans are exposed to potentially damaging workplace noise every year. As an employer, you must meet the standards outlined by the Federal Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) for hearing conservation. In this course, we'll discuss the responsibilities of you and your company when it comes to protecting your employees from hearing loss. We'll go over the human ear, how it works, and how hearing loss happens. We'll also talk about what is required of you under OSHA's hearing conservation program including measuring noise levels, training, and recordkeeping.
