protection devices (HPDs). Attendees normally

include: industrial hygienists, health and safety

personnel, nurses, audiologists, consultants,

Course Description

Administration of a comprehensive and effective hearing loss prevention program consists of more than merely purchasing and dispensing

hearing protectors. Participants will gain necessary knowledge and skills to:

Understand the effects of hazardous noise

Understand requirements in CSA hearing


* Select the appropriate HPD for their work


* Train and motivate their employees in the

proper use of HPDs

* Understand how Fit Testing elevates your

hearing loss prevention program

Emphasis will be placed upon an understanding of how hearing protectors function, how they are tested and rated, how they perform in the real world, and how they affect employees’ ability to function on their jobs. Commercially

available products will be discussed with respect to their performance, selection, fit, use, and care. Benefits of individual fit testing as described in CSA Z94.2-14 & Z1007-16 will be discussed.
