Exposures to noise hazards take a tremendous toll on our country. Approximately 22 million workers are exposed to harmful noise, with 1.7 million over the age of 50 suffering from significant hearing loss. However, there is good news! It is absolutely possible to avoid exposure to harmful noise and maintain great hearing capabilities. Iowa State University offers a free training program that will prepare you to do just that: recognize, understand, and control exposure to noise hazards.
This training is designed for all levels of employees that work in manufacturing and construction environments. Supervisors and safety personnel are highly encouraged to participate in the Advanced session; however, participation in the Fundamentals session is required before proceeding to the Advanced session.
