Hearing Conservation Awareness
***This course is part of CORE Training Day 3.
The Hearing Conservation Awareness program is a knowledge-based training program that meets Occupational Safety and Health Administration guidelines for training and education pertaining to occupational noise exposure. The program specifically addresses employees whose daily total noise exposure would equal or exceed the established 8 hour time weighted average (TWA) sound level of 85 decibels measured on the “A” weighted scale, in the hearing conservation procedures.
Protection against the effects of noise exposure will be provided when the sound levels exceed those designated by the standard. Employers must make copies of this standard available to affected employees.
