Welcome back to the Science of Safety Podcast. This time the podcast co-hosts Mark Reggers and Laurie Wells along with their guest, 3M’s Skye Liu, a Senior Specialist in China, to discuss the importance of fit for hearing protection. Fit and noise reduction are related and are key aspects of hearing protector selection and use. Tune in to learn more about fit for earplugs and earmuffs, fit testing methods, factors that can affect fit, best practices, and much more. The first global season of the Science of Safety Podcast is presented by the 3M Personal Safety Division. This is a
Let’s listen and learn even more about some fundamental concepts for hearing protection selection.
Selection of appropriate safety equipment, including personal protective equipment (PPE), is critical to all rescue workers, law enforcement, and other professionals involved in the aftermath of an earthquake.
With floods come hazards such as mold or airborne dusts containing harmful substances. Consider what personal protective equipment (PPE) you may need to help safely clean-up after the storm.
Listen to learn more about some fundamental concepts for hearing protection selection.
Review some of the hazards encountered during smelting and casting applications, as well as other activities associated with the primary metal manufacturing industries, and the PPE available.
Do you know what level of protection your employees are receiving from their hearing protectors? Now you can with a field attenuation estimation system (FAES). The 3M™ E-A-Rfit™ Dual-Ear Validation System can help provide value for your hearing loss prevention program (HLPP).
Learn more about the history and innovations behind 3M N95 respiratory protection and earplug hearing protection.
Learn more about what PPE and other measures that can be taken to protect those who engage in important welding and grinding applications.
This study demonstrated a statistically significant increase in welder productivity (as measured by weld wire applied), as well as positive welder assessments of comfort and improved weld quality, plus an opportunity to reduce the potential for eye injuries when welders used an integrated PPE respiratory PAPR system.
