Communication is crucial on all job sites. Whether it’s related to coordinating the movement of materials or issuing warnings, it’s important that workers be able to communicate with one another while staying protected from workplace hazards that could result in death or injury.
This webinar sheds light on the importance of communications devices and the extremely valuable benefits they can offer that other hearing protection devices (HPD) do not. Webinar attendees will learn how to identify workplaces where communications devices can help increase employee productivity, prevent the “lift and listen” removal of HPDs during a shift and enable essential communication in noisy environments, even with high background noise.
Attendees will also learn how to integrate communications into their hearing conservation program. Specific steps will be outlined in order to gain the maximum benefits from communication devices.
