Buy Quiet Workshop Set for Nov. 9-10

The NIOSH event in Cincinnati is intended to encourage greater use of engineering noise controls by construction and manufacturing employers.

NIOSH announced a two-day Buy Quiet Workshop organized by the NORA Construction Sector and Manufacturing Sector Programs and the NIOSH Hearing Loss Prevention Cross-sector Program will take place Nov. 9-10 in Cincinnati. Participants will discuss the feasibility and functionality of Buy Quiet programs, with the goal of seeing these programs adopted more widely.
