NIOSH Renews Partnerships for Power Tool Noise Reduction

Starting again this fall, NIOSH will sponsor college engineering student groups to evaluate and redesign power tools to reduce noise emissions as part of a class project. The projects are made possible by multiple partnerships between NIOSH and Michigan Tech University, Penn State University, Iowa State University, Purdue University, and the University of Cincinnati. These partnerships help to reduce risk of noise induced hearing loss among construction workers while promoting interest in occupational safety and health to engineering students.
