Hearing Protection Applications & Hazards

Advance your hearing conservation program with a customised and comprehensive approach to the hearing protection challenge. Implementing a solution that really makes a difference begins with understanding the hazards and your type of work environment.

According to the EU OSHA one third of workers in Europe are exposed to potentially dangerous levels of noise. Different work environments, and hearing and communication needs, require different kinds of hearing protection solutions.
