Hearing Conservation: Types of Hearing Protection (Microlearning)


Hearing loss is a major hazard in many workplaces. Approximately 30 million American workers are exposed to noise levels at their job that can damage their hearing, and the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that over 20,000 employees report occupationally-induced hearing loss every year. Learners who successfully complete this module should be able to identify types of hearing protection and other controls to protect their hearing. This microlearning course addresses a specific aspect of a broader training topic. For a more complete training experience, see HRC-1.2 Hearing Conservation.
