Hearing protectors help combat hearing loss, improve compliance

Effective hearing protection should be comfortable, effective, and yet still enable people to talk to one another. Custom Protect Ear’s hearing protection devices are made of a medical-grade silicone, and they are designed to be soft and flexible. The advantage of the softer devices is better comfort and function. They change shape slightly as the wearer’s ear canal changes shape when talking or chewing, thereby continuing to seal during those activities. Greater comfort addresses a significant problem facing health and safety managers who oversee hearing loss prevention programs: getting people to wear hearing protection products and policing their use.

Including a filter and vent in custom ear protectors like Custom Protect Ear’s can make speech more understandable by reducing attenuation at higher speech frequencies. This allows them to be left in while talking, and isn’t possible with typical solid foam earplugs. Talking by two-way radio is also common in manufacturing settings. But because a radio must be louder than factory noise for a worker to hear it, it usually is the loudest sound source in the work setting, which must be protected against to avoid hearing loss. To deal with this problem, Custom Protect Ear connects incoming radio audio to the outside of the hearing protector so the device’s filter reduces decibel volume and the worker does not have to remove the hearing protector during his or her shift. Because the proprietary filters “squeeze” high and low frequencies to block potentially harmful sound waves, communication comes through, but harmful noise does not.

Testimonials

“..Sonic onsite testing came out to our facility on short notice with a smile and a more than positive attitude! He was more than happy to educate our workers on the proper use of hearing protection using audiometric testing and took the time to explain his process to staff. Mike’s knowledge of spirometry, fit testing and the ability to match these services to our needs was an exceptional help to boost the ongoing growth of our Safety Program. It was a pleasure doing onsite testing with Sonic OnSite Services and will encourage colleagues to do the same! Thanks [Sonic]”.

Industrial hearing protection among people in the construction industry

Hearing loss amongst workers in the construction industry is quite common and preventable with proper hearing protection such as a DB blocker. It is not at all a surprise that construction industry professionals run the risk of greater hearing loss than most. When you take into consideration the amount of noise produced from machinery such as jackhammers exceeding 120 decibels, a worker can find themselves in an enivronment comparable to a rock concert. Constant exposure to loud noise without adequate hearing protection such as a DB blocker over the span of many months and years contributes to noise-induced hearing loss.

Spirometry - New respiratory guidance documents

OSHA and NIOSH have created two guidance documents, one for workers and one for employers, showing how the use of spirometry testing will reduce and prevent workers' exposure to respiratory hazards. Spirometry is a common pulmonary function test that measures how well a person moves air in and out of the lungs. To catch changes of problems in lung function, spirometry is the industry standard testing method. Inhaling some types of dusts, gases, or other air contaminants can damage lungs. The spirometry test may detect breathing problems or significant changes in a worker's lung function at an early stage.
