CAOHC/NHCA 2014 Webinar Series:
"Plugging the Holes in Hearing Conservation Programs: Promoting Prevention and Overcoming Obstacles”
Webinar #5: "Economics of Hearing Conservation Program and Noise Control”
Description: Prioritizing hearing loss prevention forces administrators to address cost of services and allocation of resources. This session suggests a systematic method to compare the costs of maintaining hearing conservation program to the cost of implementing noise control engineering. Companies can apply this tool to learn if the process of reducing the noise hazards can have an added economic benefit to that of risk reduction.
Presenter: Dennis P. Driscoll, P.E., Brd. Cert., I.N.C.E. - Associates in Acoustics, Inc.
Dennis has both a Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees from North Carolina State University. Since 1980, his specialties in acoustics include measurement of equipment noise levels and employee noise exposures, the design of engineering controls, and environmental surveys. From 1980-1988 he managed Amoco Corporation’s hearing conservation program, and has been an acoustical consultant to industry since 1988. Toward professional certification, he is a registered Professional Engineer and a Board Certified Noise Control Engineer. He is a Past President of the National Hearing Conservation Association (NHCA), a Fellow Member of the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA), and past Chair of the AIHA Noise Committee. Finally, Dennis is one of the Editors and participating author of The Noise Manual, 5th Edition, by AIHA.
