New Web site offers resource for proposed NRR labeling changes (2/1)
Sponsored by hearing conservation leaders E-A-R, Peltor and 3M,www.NRRUpdate.comoffers news updates as changes are made, answers to frequently asked questions, articles as well as an opportunity to pose questions to hearing conservation experts, including E-A-R Senior Scientist Elliott Berger, and 3M Technical Advisor Ted Madison.
“There are a number of agencies and steps involved before the changes can go into effect,” notes Berger. “Visitors can learn about the various agencies and organizations involved, including the EPA and ANSI, and better understand how they fit into the regulatory process. They can also see side-by-side comparisons of the old and proposed new labels and the rationale behind the revised standard, which should ultimately make it easier to choose effective hearing protection.”
