How do I know if I need hearing protection?

As a rule of thumb, if you have to raise your voice to be heard when speaking with someone three feet away, hearing protection should be worn. If you are concerned about potential noise exposure, please fill out a Supervisor Request for Occupational Noise Evaluation form and submit the completed form to EHS (location and contact details).
