FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
Strom & Associates is excited to host an industrial hearing loss webinar on January 16, 2020 from 11:00AM - 12:00 PM CST. Focused on workplace noise exposure and hearing damage, this must-attend event will feature information about hazardous noise in a variety of industries, effective strategies to reduce occupational hearing loss, and the symptoms that indicate damage has occurred.
Approximately 30 million workers are exposed to hazardous noise levels and ototoxic chemicals at work that can cause irreversible hearing loss. In addition to losing their hearing, workers with severe auditory damage often have difficulty securing or maintaining employment and they frequently experience challenges when transitioning to different positions. It is common for workers with hearing loss to have to rely on special equipment to communicate effectively. Unfortunately, many injured workers suffer in silence.
During the industrial hearing loss webinar, you’ll hear real-life stories about workers who suffered auditory damage after exposure to occupational noise. You’ll gain insight about common sources of hazardous noise in the workplace and learn about the industries that are most at-risk. We’ll talk about how your company can reduce dangerous noise levels, the safety equipment that can minimize exposure, and how implementing a hearing conservation program can eliminate hearing damage among workers. At the end of the webinar, we’ll open the floor for questions.
EH&S professionals, business owners, managers, and workers who are interested in creating and maintaining a successful hearing conservation program in their workplace are encouraged to attend.
