Custom Protect Ear is proud to announce they will be distributing Sensear products to better serve their customers. Both companies, Custom Protect Ear (CPE) and Sensear, are communication and hearing protection specialists focused on providing clear communication and hearing protection in noisy environments.

Custom Protect Ear provides personalized hearing protection, dB Blockers™, which will integrate with select Sensear Smart Plug and Muff products. Sensearʼs SENS (speech enhancement noise suppression) technology combined with the fit of a dB Blocker™ will give the wearer a radio communication and hearing protection experience like they’ve never experienced before. Combine that with Sensear’s spatial recognition and the wearer is completely in touch with their surroundings. These two experiences combined will help reduce the ongoing cost of noise in work environments.

dB Blockers™ offer “The Smartest Hearing Protection in the World”, especially where interpersonal communication is required. The dB Blocker™ technology will reduce the cost of noise. In Occupational Health and Safety industry the cost of noise is considered to be hearing loss, productivity and risk management. Custom Protect Ear’s flagship product, dB Blockers™, eliminate hearing loss, mitigate risk management, and enhance productivity through effective communication.

When it comes to safety in the industrial and commercial sectors there seems to be an underlying problem with the growing cost of hearing loss prevention in noisy work environments. It is documented that 40% of the companies surveyed reported that they had thought their workers lost up to 30 minutes a day when trying to communicate in noise. Plus, the average cost of hearing conversation programs is $310 per employee per year. With these costs combined with the Workers Compensation claims have been doubled in the last 10 years, companies are feeling the squeeze to their bottom line.

There is also the issue of human cost of risk management; it is more important to reduce or eliminate accidents and fatalities in the workplace. If workers cannot hear or communicate, then it’s not clear, and hazards cannot adequately be avoided. It is only a win - win when workers are provided with the right hearing and communication devices that allows them to do their jobs in a noisy workplace

Hearing protection and communication devices need to enable workers to have operational awareness in noisy environments. It is the mission of both Custom Protect Ear and Sensear to provide workers with the same experience in high noise induced areas as they would in low noise areas. Custom Protect Earʼs inventory of Sensear products will allow their customers (Industrial Hygienists, Occupational Therapists and Safety Professionals) to access a total hearing protection and communication solution.

The solution, dB Blockers™, will enhance productivity, save money, eliminate unnecessary costs and associated risks when it comes to providing workers with a safe working environment.
