Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) can play an important role in noise control in the workplace. Below are some types of PPE which can help reduce noise exposure.
Employers should provide proper training to employees on the correct use and maintenance of hearing protection devices. This includes how to properly insert earplugs, adjust earmuffs for a proper fit, and regularly clean and replace them as needed.
Hearing protection should be used in conjunction with other noise control measures, such as engineering controls (e.g., sound barriers, mufflers) and administrative controls (e.g., limiting exposure time, job rotation) to effectively reduce noise exposure in the workplace.
It is the employer’s responsibility to regularly review and assess the effectiveness of the selected PPE and noise control measures to ensure ongoing protection for employees.
