Course Description

Course Description

MARCOM's interactive course on Hearing Conservation and Safety assists employers in complying with the OSHA standard while providing workers with the information they need to recognize and avoid noise hazards.  We live in a noisy world… sometimes too noisy. Nearly 50 million Americans have experienced hearing loss from exposure to hazardous sound levels. For tens of thousands of them, this exposure occurred while they were doing their job. OSHA's Hearing Conservation Standard was created to address this hazard and protect the hearing of employees.

Areas in the course include information on the mechanics of sound; how the ear works; hazardous noise in the workplace; wearing ear muffs; using ear plugs and canal caps, the importance of regular hearing tests; and more. Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text and colorful graphics, this course provides the most cost-effective safety and regulatory compliance training available today.
