Hearing Conservation - Online Training

Product Description
$59.95
Maximum quantity available reached.

Do you work in an environment with noises above 85 decibels? If so, OSHA requires you to receive Hearing Conservation Training! Get your Hearing Protection from the #1 provider of Health and Safety Training in the industry! 

The Hearing Conservation Amendment in The OSHA Occupational Noise Standard 29 CFR 1910.95 says, “Employers must establish a hearing conservation program for employees whose noise exposures equal or exceed an eight hour time-weighted average (TWA) of 85 decibels (dBA).”

Our training course meets training requirements under OSHA 29 CFR 1910.95 and is completely compliant with OSHA!

OSHA Hearing Conservation Program

OSHA research has found that workplaces with an effective hearing protection program have increased productivity levels and have far fewer absences than workplaces without them!

This Hearing Protection Course covers how excessive noise in the workplace affects or even damages hearing and what measures can be taken to reduce noise. This includes preventing initial hearing loss, protecting remaining hearing, and knowledge of hearing protection devices that you can use to protect yourself.

Also discussed in the Hearing Conservation Course are the proper techniques to protect against harmful noises and what hearing devices or personal protective equipment (PPE) can be worn to protect your ears against excessive harmful noises. This includes the measurement and monitoring noise, audiometric testing, and information on your company's Hearing Conservation (Protection) Program.

Under OSHA 29 CFR 1910.95 for Hearing Protection, employers must:

  • Measure noise levels
  • Provide annual hearing exams
  • Provide hearing protection equipment
  • Provide the proper Hearing Protection Training

Who needs Hearing Conservation Training?

Employees exposed to potentially harmful levels of noise regularly at work will benefit from this course. According to OSHA, anyone who works with noises above 85 decibels for long periods of time is required to receive Hearing Protection Training!

What are OSHA’s requirements for Hearing Protection?

“The employer shall administer a continuing, effective hearing conservation program, as described in paragraphs (c) through (o) of this section (29 CFR 1910.95(c)(1)), whenever employee noise exposures equal or exceed an 8-hour time-weighted average sound level (TWA) of 85 decibels measured on the A scale (slow response) or, equivalently, a dose of fifty percent. For purposes of the hearing conservation program, employee noise exposures shall be computed in accordance with appendix A and Table G-16a, and without regard to any attenuation provided by the use of personal protective equipment.”

Does OSHA require a Hearing Conservation Program?

OSHA requires a Hearing Conservation Program for all workplaces with noises above 85 decibels for long periods of time.

What does a Hearing Conservation Program include?

A Hearing Conservation Program should include how excessive noise in the workplace affects or damages hearing and what measures can be taken to reduce noise, or what devices can be worn to protect one's ears against excessive noise. It should also include how to measure and monitor noise, audiometric testing.

What is OSHA’s action level for noise?

OSHA says the action level is 85 decibels at an 8-hour average exposure limit, 100 decibels no longer than 15 minutes, and 110 decibels no more than 1 minute of exposure.

What is the action level?

The action level is the level of sound that OSHA says you will need hearing protection at anything above that limit requires hearing protection.

What two factors determine whether a noise is hazardous or damaging to hearing?

The two factors that determine if noise is damaging or hazardous is intensity (how loud the noise is) and how long you will be exposed to it.
