Hearing Conservation

Hearing conservation in Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) involves protecting workers from occupational noise exposure and preventing hearing loss. OHS guidelines emphasize the implementation of noise assessments to identify hazardous noise levels in the workplace. Strategies for hearing conservation include engineering controls (such as noise barriers or quieter equipment), administrative controls (like limiting exposure time), and the use of personal protective equipment (such as earplugs or earmuffs). Regular monitoring of noise levels, providing hearing protection devices, educating workers on the risks of noise exposure, and conducting regular hearing tests are essential components of a comprehensive hearing conservation program. Prioritizing hearing protection safeguards employees’ hearing health, reducing the risks of noise-induced hearing loss and maintaining a safer work environment.
