      Hearing Conservation

      Larson Davis Inc.'s CORTI® software and services are designed to identify at-risk employees and improve performance of hearing conservation programs. Its easy-to-use statistical analysis tools leverage users' data and correlates changes in Hearing Threshold Levels to workers' noise exposure data, allowing for continuous HCP improvement to be implemented.


      Extech Instruments

      Sound Monitor

      Extech Instruments' new SL130 Sound Level Monitor features both internal alarm illumination and external alarm output. Designed for worker safety compliance, the monitor is ideal for industrial environments--such as factories, plants, refineries, and mills--where there is a need to generate an alert when sound levels exceed a pre-set limit.


        Howard Leight

        Attenuation Study

        A recent field attenuation study by Howard Leight's Acoustical Laboratory found that one-on-one training is the most significant factor in predicting good ear plug performance. Of the more than 100 workers tested, one-third achieved attenuations higher than the published NRR for their ear plugs.
