Hearing Conservation

Hearing Conservation

Exposures to high levels of noise can cause permanent hearing loss. Short term exposures to loud noise can also cause a temporary change to hearing. EH&S can help identify high risk jobs/areas, provide sound/noise monitoring, and provide hearing conservation training/program management. Specific jobs at Harvard require employee baseline and annual audiogram testing.

Make sure all machine safe guards are in place at all times so that moving parts are not a danger to you and other workers nearby. If machine safety guards are removed due to maintenance, ensure that LOTO protocols are closely followed.
