NHCA International Symposium

Posted: May 13, 2022

NHCA is planning an International Symposium on Hearing Protector Fit Testing in Dallas, Texas, August of 2023. The goal is to accelerate implementation of hearing protection fit testing into effective hearing conservation programs. Employers, policy makers, researchers, manufacturers, and others will share current science and uses for hearing protector fit testing. Objectives include:

  1. Increase knowledge regarding the evidence-based use of hearing protector fit testing.
  2. Identify supports and barriers to fit testing implementation in occupational settings and develop solutions for overcoming barriers.
  3. Advance hearing protector fit testing as the rule in hearing loss prevention programs.  

To make a difference in the future of protecting hearing in the workplace and beyond, contact Pam Graydon at 513-533-8582 or [email protected].

Hearing Research – Current Insights

Posted: May 13, 2022

https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/35061637/Awareness, Perceptions, and Literacy Surrounding Hearing Loss and Hearing Rehabilitation Among the Adult Population in the United States

  • Searching for educational materials to teach children about the importance of hearing has improved greatly over the last 30 years. What about adult education? To paraphrase Dr. Doug Ohlin, if a drop of blood ran out of the ear for every decibel of hearing lost, individuals would need little convincing that hazardous noise damages hearing. Researchers with the Hearing Health Collaborative, https://adulthearing.com/hearing-health-collaborative/, surveyed 1,250 U.S. adults. Among their findings: less than 20% understood that hearing loss is preventable. While (59%) reported taking their pet(s) to a veterinarian, just 27% reported having a hearing evaluation.
