We will be covering some important aspects of hearing protection in this article. Also, we will provide information about the best foam earplugs from US Standard Products.
When should you wear hearing protection?
You need hearing protection if you are exposed for a prolonged period to loud noise. Employers are required to have a policy in place for hearing protection when the noise level is at or above 85 decibels over an average of eight hours.
For a comparison, an average conversation is about 60 decibels. This is lower than the 85 decibel threshold. A cordless drill emits about 90-95 decibels while it is running.
There are two main options for hearing protection: ear muffs or ear plugs. The choice of which option you choose is often determined by the preferences of the person wearing it. For many reasons, however, workers prefer earplugs to ear muffs.
They are easy to transport and convenient. Plugs can be easily paired with other types safety equipment because they are small and fit in the ear. They are also more comfortable when working in heat. If it is hot and humid, they don’t get so sweaty and dirty.
