Hearing conservation


Hazardous noise in the workplace can affect workers (and others) in a variety of ways; from making it difficult to hear sounds necessary for working safely, to noise induced hearing loss.

Noise induced hearing loss occurs gradually, so often goes unnoticed until the degree of hearing loss affects the person’s quality of work and life in general. Noise induced hearing loss cannot be repaired, but it can be prevented.

The USC Hearing Conservation Program Guideline has been developed to guide USC staff in preventing noise induced hearing loss as a result of exposure to hazardous noise levels from activities occurring at USC or resulting from the conducting of USC business.
