MARCOM Group Ltd., The Description:
MARCOM's "Hearing Conservation and Safety" Videotape Program has been created specifically to involve employees in the process of understanding noise hazards and to help facilities in fulfilling the OSHA Occupational Noise Exposure and Hearing Protection Standard (29 CFR,1910.95) training requirements. The Videotape reviews why employees should pay attention to "noise" hazards, and how they can protect themselves from hearing injuries. Everywhere we go, we encounter noise. And if this noise is loud enough, or has certain characteristics, it can cause damage to our hearing... often permanently. Millions of Americans have a measurable hearing loss, most often caused by "on-the-job" injuries. Yet many employees don't realize that not only can hearing problems affect their work, they can al
ter their personal lives dramatically as well.
Areas covered in the program include how our ears "work", types of hearing damage/loss, common causes of hearing damage/loss, potential effects of hearing damage, noise avoidance and hearing safety practices, selection and use of personal protective equipment, and more. The Videotape Program comes with a comprehensive Leader's Guide, reproducible Scheduling & Attendance Form, Employee Quiz, Training Certificate and Training Log.
Hearing Safety Video Excerpt:
We live in a noisy world. The sound that surrounds us can often help us to communicate with our environment. But it can also hurt us without us even realizing it. Many of the sounds we take for granted both at home and at work can actually be harmful over time. Before we know it the damage is done and our hearing is impaired. For about 10 million people hearing loss resulting from loud noise is a grim reality. Noise can also cause stress and fatigue, interfere with concentration, and lower morale. In addition many of these factors can also cause accidents. That’s why OSHA created a regulation to protect workers from high levels of noise. It’s called the Occupational Noise Exposure Standard. The regulation requires employees to be trained how to protect their hearing when they work in areas where sound levels can be harmful. That’s what this program is all about. Protection begins with awareness. You need to understand the effects of noise on hearing, the purpose, value, and care of hearing protection, and hearing test procedures. Your first hearing safeguard is to understand how noise can injure your hears. This will help you recognize conditions that can damage your ability to hear.
