The Right Testing Solution is Key to Your Hearing Conservation Program

Let's talk testing for occupational hearing loss. Editor Sydny Shepard sits down with SHOEBOX's Alexa Gough to talk all about Hearing Conservation Programs, hearing testing and more.

According to NIOSH, hearing loss is the third-most common chronic physical condition among adults after hypertension and arthritis. Of those, about 24 percent of the hearing difficulty among U.S. workers is caused by occupational exposures.

In this podcast episode, SHOEBOX's Alexa Gough and Editor Sydny Shepard talk all about the elements of a Hearing Conservation Program, testing employee hearing and ensuring that workers feel some sort of ownership over their own hearing health.

First, a little more about Alexa. Alexa is the Occupational Hearing Conservation Business Unit Manager at SHOEBOX Audiometry. In this role, she works with some of the most forward-thinking manufacturers and onsite/near-site occupational healthcare providers in North America. She has a passion for partnering with them to find innovative ways of improving the way they deliver audiometric testing as part of a hearing conservation program, all while helping them achieve their overall business objectives.
