Noise-induced hearing loss is among the most common occupational hazards people face at work—and poor (or toxic!) air quality is among the most dangerous. In this essential JHSC session, we cover the basics of air quality and noise exposure that every committee member should know.
- Find out how noise damage happens in our ears, what the safe threshold is, and how to know that we’re not being exposed to damaging levels of noise at work.
- Learn about the risks that can be present in the air in your workplace, what to look for, and when it’s time to get an assessment.
- Take away information you can use in your ongoing worksite inspections and in your own hazard assessments every day.
