Domtar and 3M have been recognized with a Safe-in-Sound Excellence Award™ for the comprehensive integration of their hearing loss prevention program beyond the traditional occupational work environment into recreational and community activities enjoyed by their workers, their families and their neighbors. These are leading examples of the effort toward “total worker hearing health” and investing in the hearing health of future employees. Both employers recognized the specific non-occupational noise exposures encountered by their workforce and took steps to provide training and hearing protection devices specific to the local sound hazards.
