Noise Policy: Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)
Date(s) - 16/05/2022 - 18/05/2022( 8:00 am - 5:00 pm )
Location: Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur
The purpose of this training is to help to define company requirements regarding noise in the workplace. These requirements, which are based on the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standard Occupational Noise Exposure, are designed to protect employees from hearing loss which could result from exposure to high levels of workplace noise.
The OSHA standard requires employers to implement a Hearing Conservation Program whenever employees are exposed to occupational noise levels above the OSHA action level (an 8-hour time-weighted average of 85 dBA). In compliance with the OSHA standard, this policy incorporates a Hearing Conservation Program with a primary objective of maintaining work environments free from noise hazards that could lead to noise-induced hearing loss.
Several measures can be taken to prevent overexposure to workplace noise. The first step is to reduce the noise coming from the source itself. This may be accomplished through engineering or administrative controls, as described in this policy. Whenever such controls are not feasible or fail to adequately reduce workplace noise to safe levels, exposed employees will be included in the Hearing Conservation Program outlined in this training.
- Identify hazardous noise environments in the workplace through sound surveys.
- Implement engineering and/or administrative controls to reduce workplace noise levels or worker exposure to noise.
