Arm & Hand Protection

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for Manufacturing Course - Lesson Excerpt

Arm & Hand Protection

Arm & Hand Protection

Arm and hand injuries are one of the most common injuries in any workplace and protection must be used to minimize, not eliminate the potential for injury.

Arm & Hand Protection

A wide assortment of gloves, hand pads, sleeves, and wristlets should be used for tasks that can cause hand and skin burns, absorption of harmful substances, cuts, fractures or amputations

Ear Protection

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for Manufacturing Course - Lesson Excerpt

Ear Protection

Ear Protection

Noise, or unwanted sound, is one of the most pervasive occupational health problems.

Ear Protection

Hearing Conservation aims to prevent occurrence or reduce progression of noise-induced hearing loss.

Ear Protection

Excessive exposure to high levels of noise causes permanent hearing loss, sleeplessness, irritability, among other harmful health effects as well.

Ear Protection

Noise-induced hearing loss can be temporary which results from short-term exposures to noise, with normal hearing returning after period of rest or permanent which is caused by prolonged exposure to high noise levels over a period of time.

Ear Protection

If noise exposure is equivalent to or greater than 85 decibels (dB) averaged over 8 working hours, or an 8-hour time-weighted average (TWA) called the Action Level.

Ear Protection

If you can’t carry on a typical conversation from 2 feet away without raising your voice, you need monitoring and hearing protection.

Ear Protection

Whenever there are changes in production, process, or controls that increase noise exposure, monitoring just be repeated

Ear Protection

Careful checking or calibration of instruments used for monitoring employee exposures is needed to ensure that the measurements are accurate

Ear Protection

Audiometric testing program monitors an employee’s hearing over time and should be available at no cost.
