The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) reports that about 10 million workers nationwide incur permanent hearing loss, while nearly 30 million of us are exposed to dangerous levels in our day to day occupations.
OSHA compliance requires that all workers exposed to 8-hour time-weighted average (TWA) noise levels of 85 decibels (dBs) or above receive hearing conservation training annually.
This online course satisfies the annual training requirements for OSHA 29 CFR § 1910.95 Occupational noise exposure (Hearing Protection and Conservation).
