Moldex-Metric, Inc. announces the launch of two innovative, new products to join their popular line of EcoStation and PlugStation Earplug Dispensers that continue Moldex’s long history of easy to use high quality work place safety and worker protection products. These two products address today’s enhanced concerns over workplace hygiene and worker comfort.
Millions of workers are exposed to hearing hazards every year, and even though OSHA regulations and NIOSH recommendations in the U.S. specify hearing protection, occupational hearing loss is still the number one reported worker illness in manufacturing*.
Noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) is the most common permanent and preventable occupational injury impacting workers today. And unlike most injuries it is painless, progressive, permanent and preventable.
People who wear earplugs at work may not be getting the full protection they need. That's because they're not wearing earplugs properly – through no fault of their own. Most earplugs employ a one-size-fits-all approach, yet ears vary widely from person to person.
Poorly fitting earplugs is a major cause of inadequate hearing protection for workers. Honeywell’s new FIX-A-FIT guide for iPad® is a quick, easy and interactive way for safety managers to select, size, and fit earplugs to protect workers from noise-induced hearing loss.
Radians, Inc., a leading manufacturer of quality personal protective equipment, announced that they will break ground this spring on an 80,000 square foot expansion of their existing Memphis operations where they recently installed state-of-the-art warehouse automation equipment allowing for high volume order processing.
Radians is now manufacturing their Made in the USA foam earplug series at their corporate headquarters in Memphis, TN. The new 5200 square foot state-of-the-art manufacturing facility is under the leadership of Dennis Pellerin, an industry expert in foam plug hearing protection for over 24 years.
