Whether you are a business owner, manager, supervisor, or safety director, you have more things to do than time in the day to get them done. Loss control activities (safety, training, environmental, DOT, etc.) can often slip through the cracks, even for safety professionals, due to the tremendous amount of administrative effort that goes into maintaining compliance. We created SafetyPlusWeb™ to help you manage your safety program proactively and to save you time and money in the process.

Our Software as a Service model is not like anything else available - while other providers simply offer an empty database, we offer a complete safety solution that includes a library of online safety training courses, hundreds of free editable safety policies and other documents. This cloud-based solution is available to you anywhere and on any device!

NIOSH releases study on work-related hearing loss

Chart showning examples of occupational noise exposure in decibels
Examples of occupational noise exposure.

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health released a study last month in its Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report on hearing impairment among noise-exposed workers in the United States from 2003 to 2012. This study found a prevalence of 13 percent hearing loss (mild to complete) among 1.4 million audiograms studied. This study confirms and quantifies the prevalence of hearing loss among employees of nine major industry sectors. The mining, construction and manufacturing industries had the highest prevalence of workers with any hearing impairment or moderate to severe hearing impairment. Occupational hearing loss, primarily caused by high noise exposure, is the most common U.S. work-related illness. NIOSH estimates that 22 million U.S. workers are exposed to hazardous occupational noise. For more information, see OSHA's Occupational Noise Exposure webpage.
