Hearing Conservation and Hazardous Noise Exposure Prevention

All university employees who are exposed to hazardous noise  (eight hour exposures above 85 dB(A)) will be included in a Campus-wide Hearing conservation program.   This program includes:

  • annual monitoring of noise exposures
  • annual training on noise exposure prevention
  • use of hearing protection devices
  • annual audiometric testing and ear plug fit testing
