Free Hearing Conservation Seminars Coming to Louisiana, Texas

The seminars will provide practical information on hearing loss prevention, the culture of safety, and the latest research and technologies that can help enhance companies’ hearing conservation programs.

Honeywell Safety Products will present a series of free seminars in May 2012 throughout the U.S. Gulf Coast region geared to help safety professionals improve their hearing conservation programs and prevent noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) among their workers.

The seminars, titled “HearForever®: Best Practices in Effective Hearing Conservation,” will provide practical information on hearing loss prevention, the culture of safety, and the latest research and technologies that can help enhance companies’ hearing conservation programs—as well as their bottom line.

  • Employee motivation and training techniques/resources
