Hearing Protection RequirementsBack to The PIG® Library
29 CFR 1910.95
Hearing Protection Regulations
OSHA reports that noise exposure is one of the most common occupational health problems. High noise levels can cause either temporary or permanent hearing damage. Because of this, OSHA has developed hearing conservation standards that require employers to monitor noise exposure levels and provide workers with hearing protection any time they are exposed to noises over 85 decibels averaged over an 8 hour working period.
