Three Inventors Selected in First-Ever Noise Safety Challenge

The inventors were chosen during the first "Hear and Now—Noise Safety Challenge," hosted by OSHA and MSHA.

Three inventors were recognized for their ideas to reduce work-related hearing loss at the first "Hear and Now—Noise Safety Challenge" on Oct. 27 in Washington, D.C.

The event was hosted by OSHA and MSHA, in partnership with NIOSH, and was created with the goals of inspiring creative ideas and raising business awareness of the market for workplace safety innovation. Ten finalists were invited to the event to present their solutions to reduce workplace-induced hearing loss.

"This event was an innovative way for government to help better protect workers from job-related hearing loss by connecting the entrepreneurial community with inventors developing solutions," said Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health Dr. David Michaels.

Nick Laperle and Jeremie Voix were awarded first place for their custom-fitted earpiece designed to provide a worker with protection, communication, and monitoring.

Earning second place was to Brandon Dever for wearable sensor technology that affixes to glasses or hard hats and can detect noise levels while providing warnings via color-coded lights.
