Buy Quiet is an occupational health and safety initiative which encourages companies to purchase or rent quieter machinery as older machinery is replaced in order to reduce worker exposure to noise.

The program helps you comply with OSHA requirements, reduces the noise impact on the community, and encourages manufacturers to design equipment that is quieter. Most importantly, it reduces your risk of hearing loss.
