Say Again? New OSHA publication on hearing protection

Work with loud heavy machinery? Are you concerned about employee hearing loss? Just received this information from OSHA and thought I'd pass it along.

New OSHA worker educational publication on protection from noise in construction

OSHA published a new educational publication for construction workers, Protecting Yourself from Noise in Construction. The booklet, written for workers and employers, provides information on the hazards of loud noise in construction, how noise levels are measured, and how to find out if noise on the job site or from tools is loud enough to cause hearing loss. It also gives examples of administrative and engineering controls employers can use to reduce worker exposure to noise, as well as information on the proper selection and use of personal hearing protection. To order copies of this or other OSHA publications please call 1-800-321-OSHA or 202-693-1999 or visit OSHA's Publications Web page.
