Each worker is an individual; ear canal shapes and fitting methods are different meaning that hearing protective equipment has to be tailored to suit each individual. But how do you know that your worker hearing protection has been correctly tailored?? And how do you know you are getting maximum protection required according to your working environment??
The new E-A-RfitTM Validation System from 3M enables you to to understand the correct level of hearing protection that you need according to the different working environments that you work in.
Unlike other tone response tests, E-A-RfitTM is an F-MIRE (field-microphone-ready-in-ear) test system. By measuring noise levels inside and outside the ear, hearing protection users can obtain their individual PAR ( Personal Attenuation Rating) in as little as 8 seconds therefore allowing you to make quick assessments of the correct hearing protectors needed.
Data can be used for comparisons during subsequent tests and can also provide Health and Safety Managers with a documented record.
Sarah Broadbent, 3M Occupational Health & Environmental Safety Technical Engineer will be at the Health and Safety Midlands show on 12th - 13th September and will be holding a seminar about implementing a Successful Hearing Conservation Programme.
