October is National Protect Your Hearing Month

Occupational hearing loss can happen as a result of workers' exposure to loud noise. Noise levels over 85 decibels can be hazardous to hearing. If you have to raise your voice to speak to someone an arm's length away, the noise levels may be loud enough to damage your hearing. This October, remind your colleagues that noise-induced hearing loss is 100 percent preventable. To learn more, visit NIOSH's website for noise and hearing loss prevention and read our feature article on hearing protection.
