Hearing Protection B, Construction

Exposure to high levels of noise can cause permanent hearing loss. Damage to your hearing can be prevented, but once permanent noise-induced hearing loss occurs, it cannot be cured or reversed. Occupational noise is sometimes referred to as a stealth long-term hazard because it is a painless, gradual process. OSHA recommends that workplace noise levels be kept below 85 dBA as an 8-hour time-weighted average and hearing protective devices be worn any time noise exposures meet or exceed 85 dBA.
