Individual workers have unique hearing protection needs. Managing an efficient and effective hearing conservation program while tailoring hearing loss prevention to individual workers presents several logistical and data management challenges for the safety manager.
This webinar addresses how technology can help overcome these challenges. Making worker-specific data easier to gather is one aspect. This empowers workers to share in the responsibility of protecting their own health and safety. We also will discuss how that individual worker can be more easily managed and analyzed to assess the overall effectiveness of the hearing conservation program, and provide safety managers with easy visualization of how their program is operating location by location, and even worker by worker.
