Applicants are evaluated against key performance indicators in a review process that evaluates hearing loss prevention programs in three work sectors; construction, manufacturing, and services. A fourth award for Innovation in Hearing Loss Prevention recognizes individuals and/or business entities regardless of industrial sector.
A representative from each award winner will be invited to the NHCA annual conference to present its award-winning story, and examples of award-winning hearing loss prevention strategies will be showcased on the NHCA and Safe-in-Sound websites.
