OSHA Requirements

The hearing-conservation experts at Center for Industrial Audiometrics provide services that need to be compliant with government regulations. Below are the specific OSHA Requirements that we fulfill through our Hearing Conservation Program.

OSHA-Compliant Services:

1. Noise Monitoring

29 CFR 1910.95(d)(e)(f)

2. Audiometric Testing

29 CFR 1910.95(g)(h)

3. Hearing Protectors

29 CFR 1910.95(i)(j)

4. Education and Training

29 CFR 1910.95(k)(l)

5. Record Keeping

29 CFR 1910.95(m)

Employer Responsibility:

It is your job as an employer to provide a complete and comprehensive hearing conservation program which meets OSHA requirements in order to provide your employees adequate protection against occupational hearing loss.

The employer must administer a continuing, effective hearing conservation program whenever employee noise exposures are at or above an eight hour time-weighted average (TWA) of 85 dBA or, equivalently, a dose of 50 percent.

An effective hearing conservation program can prevent hearing loss, improve employee morale and a general feeling of well-being, increase quality of production, and reduce the incidence of stress-related disease.

Occupational Noise Standards

Noise and hearing conservation is addressed in specific standards for manufacturing, Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA), and Department of Defense (DOD).
