Steve Ochs is Casella’s Area Business Manager supporting Casella’s Health Safety and Environmental boundary monitoring solutions. He assists in the reduction of workplace and environmental health exposures through the supply of effective monitoring solutions for noise and dust.
An estimated twenty-two million workers are exposed to potentially damaging noise at work each year. For employers, worker exposure to damaging noise could result in catastrophic penalties and compensation for hearing loss disability.
