About the Webinar: Efforts to prevent the effects of noise can seem overwhelming.  However, since 2009 more than 27 specific initiatives have been recognized with the Safe-In-Sound Award for Excellence in Hearing Loss Prevention. These award winners are pioneers who invested in innovative approaches (some surprisingly simple and easy to implement) to tame the beast. Their success stories demonstrate that noise control is desirable and within reach, and that noise control benefits extend beyond the prevention of hearing loss.

In this session, you will hear about rationales and real-world examples which were implemented by single facilities or adopted across large corporations. While some key elements and strategies are not new, they are unique in how extensively they are implemented and valued, and how integrated they are at different organizational levels.  The practical range of strategies covered, will provide guidance on how to achieve excellence in hearing loss prevention in your own work. Attendees will learn about practical ideas for reducing noise-induced hearing loss and innovative approaches to managing Hearing Loss Prevention Programs that have helped these companies achieve greater success.


The Safe-In sound award is presented annually by the National Hearing Conservation Association (NHCA), the National Institute for Occupational Health and Safety (NIOSH) and the Council for Accreditation in Occupational Hearing Conservation (CAOHC). Participants are encouraged to apply for the award online https://www.safeinsound.us
