Webinar: Get the Most from Your Hearing Conservation Program Investment
Monday, June 17, 1pm Central

Companies spend lots of money on hearing conservation programs, but until now there have been very few tools available to help managers maximize that investment.

Federal regulations require employers to operate effective hearing conservation programs (HCP) for people working in hazardous noise. But, even with specific rules and recommendations to guide them, employers may struggle to be proactive and able to prevent occurrences of noise-induced hearing loss.

In our next free webinar on Monday, June 17, Laurie Wells and Tim Kearney of 3M's Personal Safety Division will cover:

  • Understanding the federal regulations on workplace hearing protection
  • Identifying common issues that make hearing conservation programs ineffective
  • Discussing best practices in hearing loss prevention that improve hearing protection use
  • Tips, tools, and recommendations to help keep hearing conservation programs on track
