Honeywell (NYSE:HON) today announced a free software upgrade for its VeriPRO® earplug fit-testing system. Based on user experience with thousands of earplug fit-tests, the upgrade to VeriPRO 3.0 offers users a more efficient, versatile, and user-friendly experience.
Honeywell’s VeriPRO system enables safety managers to easily create an accurate, real-world picture of their employees’ hearing protection. With VeriPRO, managers can determine the individual protection level of a worker fitted with any earplugs through a simple listening test — and then decide whether the employee is receiving optimal protection from the earplugs, requires additional fit training, or needs to try a different model.
VeriPRO features include:
- Measures each employee's Personal Attenuation Rating (PAR) – the individual protection level for that worker wearing a particular earplug
- Works with any earplug, corded or uncorded, from any manufacturer
- Fulfills regulatory requirements to ensure proper initial fitting of hearing protection
- Documents training and proper fit for new or existing employees
- Provides an ideal opportunity for one-on-one education
The VeriPRO system consists of PC-based software, an audiometrically optimized headset, audio processor, QuickStart guide and USB cable. By verifying earplug effectiveness and providing an ideal opportunity for education, VeriPRO becomes an integral part of a successful Hearing Conservation Program.
The VeriPRO 3.0 upgrade ensures that hearing protection fit testing has never been easier by delivering:
- More efficiency — as users can enter and edit any earplug from any manufacturer; earplug size is documented for many earplugs; and controls are improved for faster testing;
- More versatility — as information uploading is easier; installation is available in 32-bit or 64-bit formats; and test results default to industry standard, or user-determined, measurements;
- A more user-friendly experience — with simplified installation on Windows PCs, customized installation options, and a wider range of report formats.
