NHCA Recommendations to EPA on NRR Change Intend to Improve Utility of Hearing Protection Devices at Work and at Home
Date:12/7/2009

ffectiveness of hearing loss prevention programs in the United States," said Neitzel.

Second, NHCA urges the EPA to revise and simplify the labeling of hearing protectors. This will help ensure that all users - and especially users who have not been trained on the proper use of hearing protectors - receive adequate protection when they use the devices.

"The required labels should be simplified, made more symbol-based, and provided in multiple languages to ensure that their correct use is clear for all users," said Neitzel. "Supporting information, such as the performance of the protector at specific test frequencies, should be provided online, as a packaged insert or upon request from the manufacturer in order to further simplify package labeling."

"NHCA is excited to work with the EPA to increase the effectiveness of hearing protectors sold and used in the United States by making the labeled values on hearing protectors more meaningful to end users. We feel that the proposed changes will help give Americans the protection from noise that they deserve, and will help reduce or eliminate the number of people who needlessly develop NIHL," said Neitzel.
