Exposure to excessive noise is a serious safety hazard in many workplaces. Regular exposure to high levels of noise can cause permanent hearing loss and other health issues. As a result, most jurisdictions’ OHS laws require employers to implement hearing conservation programs in workplaces with noise levels above specified levels. And the law typically requires employers to review these programs annually to ensure that they’re effective.
