Update: The Newsletter of the Council for Accreditation in Occupational Hearing Conservation 2009 Jul; 21(2):7-8
Hearing loss continues to be a major health and quality-of-life problem in the United States. It is the second most self-reported ailment after back problems. In the workplace, hearing loss is one of the most prevalent work-related conditions. Although some employers focus their hearing conservation efforts on compliance alone, other companies recognize that mere compliance with regulations will not prevent hearing loss, and these companies have redirected their programs to have zero tolerance for hearing loss. The Safe-in-Sound Excellence in Hearing Loss Prevention Awards(TM) program was designed to reward and learn from those companies that have excellent programs for preventing hearing loss.
