Choosing the right hearing protectors is vital

A good hearing protector must allow interpersonal communication and let workers be aware of their environment while they are protected. Cotral Lab helps you choose the best custom moulded earplug to meet the needs of each individual.

Having the right hearing protectors allows you to avoid two issues:

Overprotection: With an attenuation that’s too high, it is impossible to communicate. The employee is isolated from the environment, and is not aware of alarms and other warning signals.

Hearing Loss: With an attenuation level that's too low, the worker is not adequately protected and is at an increased risk of hearing loss.

The perfect level of protection

Evaluate your noise-related risk

Why do you need a diagnosis?

  • Know the dB level in each area of your plant
  • Understand the pros and cons of your current hearing protectors
  • Understand how satisfied your employees with their current earplugs. Do they wear them 100 percent of the time? If not, why not?
  • Make your employees accountable for their own level of protection
  • Effectively protect your workforce with the right level of attenuation for every worker in each area of the plant
