Noise Protection: Hearing Conservation & Noise Protection Policy (BC Version)
OHS laws require employers to protect workers exposed to dangerous noise levels against hearing loss and other damages. Several jurisdictions require implementation of a full blown hearing conservation program setting out specific measures used at the workplace to monitor and minimize exposure, including use of engineering and administrative controls as well as hearing protection devices and other PPE.
HOW TO USE THIS TOOL
This Model Policy is based on BC OHS requirements but can be adapted for any other jurisdiction.
