The Occupational Heath and Safety Administration (OSHA), under its Occupational Noise Exposure Standard (29CFR1910.95) mandates establishing policies and procedures for employees who are exposed to noise at levels which may result in a loss of hearing. Environmental Health and Safety works to minimize employee exposure to hazardous noise and prevent hearing loss. Exposure is limited through the implementation of administrative and engineering controls, and personal protective equipment. The WCM hearing conservation program consists of employee exposure monitoring, training, audiometric testing, hearing protection recommendations, and recordkeeping.
