Protect Your Hearing Month
DYK? October is National #ProtectYourHearing Month! Occupational hearing loss is one of the most common work-related illnesses in the United States. According to NIOSH National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, each year approximately 22 million U.S. workers are exposed to hazardous noise levels at work; and over 30 million U.S. workers are exposed to chemicals, some of which are harmful to the ear (ototoxic) and hazardous to hearing.
Spread the word - use this month to review and encourage healthy hearing habits at your worksite!
