|Safe-in-Sound Award: Submit a Nomination
Hearing loss is a major problem in the US and particularly among construction workers. One way to tackle this problem is to reward companies that have excellent programs for preventing hearing loss. NIOSH, in partnership with the National Hearing Conservation Association (NHCA), has created a new award to be given each year to the companies with the best hearing loss prevention program. This award is called “Safe in Sound” and will be first presented at the NHCA meeting in February 2009 in Atlanta. One award will be given in the manufacturing sector, one in the service sector and one in construction. An additional award will be given for an innovation in hearing loss prevention, which could be anything from a new product, training program, software program or other new and effective idea. A website has been set up for more information on the award and how to submit nominations: www.safeinsound.us.
