The Hearing Conservation Plan was established to fulfill OSHA’s requirement for establishing a site-specific written program as detailed in 29 CFR 1910.95, Occupational Noise Exposure. Implementation of the plan is a cooperative effort between EHS, occupational healthcare providers, supervisors and employees. Key elements include audiometric testing, training, sound level testing, and recordkeeping.
EHS coordinates all audiometric testing for employees enrolled in the Hearing Conservation Program, including initial, annual, repeat, and exit audiometric evaluations. For new enrollees in the program, employees are required to attend audiometric testing within six months of being enrolled in the Hearing Conservation Program and annually thereafter.
Employees enrolled in the Hearing Conservation Program are required to attend Hearing Conservation training annually. Click here to register for training.
