From OSHA:

Employers are required to measure noise levels; provide free annual hearing exams, hearing protection, and training; and, conduct evaluations of the adequacy of the hearing protectors in use (unless changes made to tools, equipment, and schedules result in worker noise exposure levels that are less than 85 dBA).

Hearing conservation programs strive to prevent initial occupational hearing loss, preserve and protect remaining hearing; and, equip workers with the knowledge and hearing protection devices necessary to safeguard themselves.
