About the Webinar: An important part of occupational safety, and of hearing conservation, is record-keeping. One of the most important, yet often dreaded, records is the OSHA 300 log, which records workplace injuries/ illness. OSHA’s 29 CFR 1904.5 on recordability tells us “You must consider an injury or illness to be work-related if an event or exposure in the work environment either caused or contributed to the resulting condition or significantly aggravated a pre-existing injury or illness”. But multiple factors impact hearing, and hearing monitoring as required by OSHA is non-diagnostic. Some cases may be fairly clearly related, or clearly not related to workplace exposure. But what about the gray areas?

In this webinar, a panel of experienced reviewers will describe OSHA’s standard, and the 2011 NHCA Guidelines for Recording Hearing Loss on the OSHA 300 Log, a set of recommendations on factors to consider in determining work relatedness. The group will then review some sample cases from the “gray area”, where work-relatedness is not so easily decided. We will close with attendees’ opinions on these cases, discussion of their own experiences, and any questions they may have.
