 HEARING PROTECTION

Exposure to noise is much more than a nuisance.
It can be permanently damaging.
That’s why your safety is our primary concern.
Hearing protectors are devices that create a physical barrier that reduces the effect of noise so as to avoid damage to the sensitive and fragile mechanism of the ear.
Reducing noise in this way is known as attenuation and it can be achieved by using different kinds of hearing protection.
In work conditions where the noise levels exceed 80 db, individuals must be provided with hearing protection if they request.
At 85 db, individuals must be informed and training provided for the use of hearing protection.
Here at S.I.S sal we are dedicated to solving the problem of hazardous noise pollution by offering protection in the work environment.


NOISE:
Noise is an unpleasant, aggravating and debilitating problem. Damage to the tiny sensory hair cells in the ear is irreversible. Personal loss of hearing can lead to expensive compensation claims being lodged against employers. The source and level of noise must be detected and analyzed. The graph below shows a common range of noise hazards.
