This 2014 NIOSH video provides an overview of Buy Quiet initiatives and resources to construction company owners, employees, subcontractors, purchasers and suppliers of power tools and equipment, and to the general community. Buy Quiet addresses the vision of eliminating noise hazards early in the life cycle of power tools and equipment, thus reducing the risk of occupational hearing loss among operators and nearby workers. Companies are encouraged to implement Buy Quiet within their organization as any company whose workers are subjected to hazardous noise exposures can benefit from Buy Quiet initiatives.
