National Protect Your Hearing Month

October is National Protect Your Hearing Month, an annual event sponsored by the CDC to raise awareness about hearing protection.  Did you know that hearing loss is the third most common chronic health condition in the United States? The CDC estimates that 22 million workers are exposed to potentially damaging noise at work each year. Hazardous noise levels in the workplace are a serious concern that not only can result in hearing loss if not protected against, but can also contribute to other causes of physical stress as well as mental stress and lower work productivity.

How do you determine if your workplace may require a hearing conservation program?  According to NIOSH, if you have to raise your voice to speak to someone an arm’s length away in any area of your facility, the noise levels may be loud enough to cause hearing loss.

OSHA specifically requires employers to implement a hearing conservation program whenever employee […]

October 6th – 12th is Fire Prevention Week!

This year’s NFPA Fire Prevention Week campaign is “Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!” The goal is to educate people about the small but important steps they can take to keep themselves, their family, and those around them safe. The campaign highlights the importance of making a fire escape plan for your home.

EHS professionals and others with safety responsibilities spend a good deal of time focusing on emergency evacuation plans for the workplace. However, the importance of evacuation or escape planning in the event of a home fire is often overlooked.  According to an NFPA survey, only one out of every three households have developed and practiced a home escape plan.

Did you know that in a typical home fire, you may have as little as one to two minutes to escape safely from the time the smoke alarm sounds? Escape planning and practice can help you make the most […]
