hearing lossIf you missed OSHA's November stakeholder meeting on preventing occupational hearing loss, you can now read about it online.

The November event was held to provide a public forum and gather information on the best practices for noise reduction in the workplace. The meeting included discussions on personal protective equipment, hearing conservation programs and engineering controls. The purpose of the meeting was to elicit the views of employers, workers, and noise control and safety and health professionals about the hazards of occupational exposure to noise and how best to control them.

OSHA held this stakeholder meeting as part of its commitment to work with stakeholders on approaches to prevent hearing loss. The meeting had 30 participants, representing industry, trade organizations, academia, unions, and government agencies, as well as consultants, attorneys, and other parties. All participants were given the opportunity to provide verbal comments at the meeting. A Summary of the stakeholder meeting is posted on OSHA's web site.
