CAOHC/NHCA 2014 Webinar Series:
"Plugging the Holes in Hearing Conservation Programs: Promoting Prevention and Overcoming Obstacles”
Webinar #4: "A Shot of Prevention: Firearms and Hearing Protection”
Description: Frustrating for employers is sorting out the issues around identifying hearing loss through occupational monitoring programs and wondering about the contribution of non-occupational noise. The most common and perhaps most damaging non-occupational noise is firearm noise. This session presents facts and myths on firearm noise and provides practical tips for shooters and educators to protect against it.
Presenter: Deanna Meinke, Ph.D. - University of Northern Colorado
Dr. Deanna Meinke is currently an Associate Professor of Audiology and Speech-Language Sciences at the University of Northern Colorado. She has served as past president of the National Hearing Conservation Association (NHCA) and the Colorado Academy of Audiology. Presently, she chairs the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) "Safe-in-Sound Expert Committee” and the NHCA Task Force on Children and Noise. At UNC, her research interests include recreational firearm sound levels, hearing protector performance in children and the use of distortion product otoacoustic emissions for the early detection and monitoring of noise-induced hearing loss, work which is funded by the Office of Naval Research (ONR). Her passion for hearing loss prevention targeting children is highlighted by her collaborations with colleagues from the Oregon Health and Science University in the delivery of Dangerous Decibels® educator training workshops in the U.S., Canada and New Zealand.
