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.

Theresa Y. Schulz, Ph.D., hearing conservation manager for Honeywell Safety Products, will present the seminars.

  • Key elements of an effective hearing conservation program
  • Impending changes to the noise reduction rating (NRR) and how it impacts your program
  • Case studies from successful hearing conservation programs
  • Employee motivation and training techniques/resources
  • Reducing costs for hearing loss

The seminars will run from 9 a.m. to noon, with registration and a complimentary breakfast starting at 8 a.m. The seminars are scheduled as follows:
