Noise Surveys & Control

...

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) established 29 CFR 1910.95 as the Hearing Conservation Standard. This Standard is designed to protect workers with significant occupational noise exposures from hearing impairment. This standard requires employers to monitor noise exposure levels in a way that accurately identifies employees exposed to noise at or above 85 decibels (dBA) averaged over 8 working hours, or an 8-hour Time Weighted Average. If TWA noise levels greater than 85 dBA are identified, employers must develop and implement a Hearing Conservation Program. The OSHA-required components of a Hearing Conservation Program (HCP) include:
  • Noise Monitoring
  • Audiometric Testing
  • Hearing Protection (to affected employees)
  • Investigation of Engineering Controls
  • Training
  • Recordkeeping
We can help employers comply with each component of the OSHA Hearing Conservation Standard. Using state of the art equipment, our Industrial Hygienists can measure and document noise exposures and provide recommendations to bring your company into compliance. Should the noise exposures exceed the OSHA Permissible Noise Levels, We can assist with the development and implementation of your Hearing Conservation Program, including Noise Control and Abatement.
