Guide to AUS/NZ Hearing Protection Standards

Noise induced hearing loss cannot be cured, it must be prevented. The damaging effects of noise can accumulate, even if an employee’s ear protection is only removed for a few minutes every day. As 100% wear time is essential, selecting the correct hearing protection is of the utmost importance. When selecting the correct hearing protection the following Australian Standards should be referred to.
