May 16: Campaign to Prevent Noise-Induced Hearing Loss Launched
WorkSafeNB kicked off a campaign encouraging residents to protect their ears. Like wearing a hard hat or work boots, workers must wear hearing protection such as earmuffs or earplugs. The goals of the campaign are to encourage everyone to wear hearing protection as part of their safety practices at work, and to raise awareness among workers and employers of the prevalence and seriousness of noise-induced hearing loss. See, WorkSafeNB’s Noise-induced Hearing Loss portal for more information.
