Industrial earplugs protect your hearing
Hearing loss is serious.
It is cumulative, irreversible, and yet, totally preventable.
Let us fit a solution to your lifestyle or work-related problem.
Importance of Industrial Earplugs
Getting the right industrial earplugs is essential. Currently, more workers and whistle-blowers expose massive hearing conservation issues that we have in our nation. Lawsuits and worker’s compensation suits notoriously demonstrate that generic solutions to problems in the workplace do not work.
Now is the time for your company to do the right thing for your employees: provide them the right hearing protection and help them become productive in a safe manner.
Industrial Earplugs in Industrial Facilities
Personal protection in the workplace such as hard hats, cut-resistant gloves, steel toe boots, safety glasses, and safety protocols such as fall protection and emergency eye flushing stations are essential in keeping your workplace safe.
When reinforced, simple measures become second nature in times of actual danger that can save lives. However, there is one unspoken piece of gear that, when handled incorrectly by employers, can cause irreparable damage to their employees: industrial earplugs.
After visiting industrial facilities across the United States, we found out that many people have little to no awareness of the lifelong risks of hearing loss in the workplace. In most facilities, it is common to find three major violations of hearing conservation compliance. These include:
1. Improper use of industrial earplugs
Frequently, workers either place earplugs into their ear canal without following the roll and squeeze technique, as explained in depth by NIOSH at:
In this case, employees are not fully protected while working. They likely receive a non-quantifiable dose of decibels on a twelve-hour shift that may cause permanent hearing damage or tinnitus.
2. Improper industrial earplug disposal
Another violation found in industrial facilities is the improper disposal of foam roll and squeeze earplugs. Many employees throw their industrial earplugs on the ground or drop them on factory floors.
This has become a rampant problem and a serious workplace hazard and a large scale environmental hazard. Consequently, overspending problems have arisen, including maintenance and machine shutdown time expenses and the hiring crew’s fees for clean-up. This has also led to numerous industrial facilities resorting to posting permanent signs facility-wide to keep their floors clean and safe.
3. Inadequate attention to earwax
The most bothersome violation is the number of employees with excess and/or impacted earwax. In fact, in the facilities we visited, we found that it is common for nearly one-third of the employees whom we make industrial earplugs for (wherein the number of employees in a two-day period ranges from 20 to over a hundred) to have impacted or excess earwax.
The buildup of earwax can lead to conductive hearing loss and other impairments. This is a problem for employees who are required to wear devices in their ear for extended periods of time. In addition, without adequate programs to teach individuals how to manage earwax, prolonged ear discomfort may result.
Sadly, many companies still do not have the proper equipment and appropriate protocols to prevent all this from occurring.
