New White Paper Details Six Common Bad Assumptions About Hearing Protection
Date:12/1/2009

is blocking some noise.
  • Bad Assumption #3: An earplug halfway in the ear blocks about half the noise.
  • Bad Assumption #4. Cut the Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) in half to predict real-world protection.
  • Bad Assumption #5. There's no way to measure real attenuation on a worker wearing earplugs.
  • Bad Assumption #6. There's no way to measure the noise dose of a worker under the hearing protectors throughout their workday
  • "Bad assumptions sink many well-intentioned workplace hearing safety initiatives. But avoiding these simple bad assumptions about hearing protection helps a Hearing Conservation Program stay on solid ground, and do just what it is designed to do: prevent noise-induced hearing loss," Witt said.
