Health and Safety Awareness Training for Contractors

Noise, or unwanted sound, is one of the most common health problems in American workplaces. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) estimates that 30 million workers a year in the United States are exposed to hazardous noise levels while on the job. Additionally, noise-related hearing loss has been listed as one of the most prevalent occupational health concerns in the United States for more than 25 years. This course, developed by the OPCMIA, is designed to explain to contractors what their responsibilities are when it comes to protecting their employees’ hearing while on the job. This course will also examine the hazard control measures and best work practices that can be used to help decrease construction noise to safe working levels.

Key topics include:

  • Employer responsibilities
  • Permissible Exposure Limits (PELs)
  • Noise monitoring
  • Decibel levels and hearing loss
  • Hazard control measures
