Occupational Noise Exposure: What you need to know

 

Tuesday, May 1, 2018

9:00 AM – 12:00 PM (English)

 

Occupational exposure to high noise levels can cause temporary or permanent hearing loss. It can interfere with communication, reduce productivity and concentration, create physical and psychological stress, and contribute to workplace accidents and injuries by making it difficult to hear warning signals.

 

Cal/OSHA regulations require all companies to conduct a hazard assessment to identify hazards to which their employees might be exposed to; this includes noise levels depending on your company particulars. Cal/OSHA requires the implementation of a Hearing Conservation Program (HCP) when levels hit a certain trigger. 

 

 

 

Venue: 

TOLMAN & WIKER
INSURANCE SERVICES, LLC

4th Floor
196 South Fir Street
Ventura, CA 93001

Please arrive 15 minutes ahead to sign in; class will begin on time.

 

 

Failure to have a HCP when required can result in citations and fines and can cause employees to suffer permanent hearing loss. As a rule of thumb, if you can’t hold a normal conversation in a work area without raising your voice in order to be heard or if you need to get in close to hear the person talking, you need to check your noise levels.

  • When is the Hearing Conservation Program required, at what noise levels?

  • What about annual audiometric testing, when is it required?

  • How can I avoid needing the program? and more!

 

No Charge to attend but space is limited. You must register to reserve your seat!

 

Please make sure all attendees arrive at least 15 minutes ahead to sign in; classes will begin on time. Ample free parking is available in the rear of the building.
