The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and the Center for Construction Research and Training (CPWR), have created a series of infographics that drive home the danger of noise-induced hearing loss in the construction industry. The infographics were developed through the OSHA-NIOSH-CPWR Research to Practice (r2p) working group.
The infographics cover the risk of hearing loss, steps to prevent hearing loss, and the benefits of buying quieter equipment. They use information from the NIOSH Buy Quiet initiative and data from CPWR’s The Construction Chart Book. They can quickly and easily be used in websites, social media posts, slideshows, and other materials.
