3M Personal Safety Division Launches 3M Center for Hearing Conservation

Print Article Contributed by FSM Staff

ST. PAUL, MN -- 3M Personal Safety Division has launched a new online resource, the 3M Center for Hearing Conservation. Safety managers can find articles and details about the seven elements of a hearing loss prevention program, as well as helpful videos, toolkits, fast facts and more.

Created by 3M audiologists and occupational health and safety specialists, the 3M Center for Hearing Conservation can help companies as they work to ensure that legal requirements are met and that workers remain engaged and motivated.

“We have known for decades that exposure to high noise causes hearing damage over time. However, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are tens of thousands of work-related cases of noise-induced hearing loss reported each year. There are solutions, but it can be challenging for employers to develop effective preventive programs,” said Dr. Laurie Wells, a doctor of audiology at 3M. “With the Center for Hearing Conservation, we are providing health and safety managers additional tools and resources to help prevent hearing damage within the workplace.”

3M Center for Hearing Conservation outlines seven elements based on OSHA requirements and NIOSH recommendations to help guide occupational health and safety professionals as they work to create and maintain a hearing conservation program:
• Measure
• Control
• Protect
• Check
• Train
• Record
• Evaluate

The 3M Center for Hearing Conservation joins the ranks of a number of online resources provided by 3M Personal Safety Division including:
• Center for Respiratory Protection
• Safety Now & Next Blog
• Silica Tool Kit
