FREE Webinar: Managing Noise Exposure Data for Extended Work Shifts - What are the Options?

When: Tuesday, July 7, 2020 

Time: 12:00pm CT - 1:00pm CT

Cost: This is a FREE webinar and open to both members/non-members. 

About the Webinar:
Determining employee time-weighted average noise exposures for facilities with 8-hour work shifts is a fairly straightforward procedure. However, confusion often reigns when extended work shifts (e.g., 10-hour, 12-hour workdays) exist. To handle exposure data for workdays greater than 8 hours there are at least three viable options. The data may be normalized to an 8-hour day for direct comparison to the applicable regulation criteria, the average sound level may be compared to a sliding-scale criteria, or the full-shift projected dose may be utilized. This webinar shall demonstrate through example how to appropriately manage the data, plus describe the pros and cons of each method. No CEUs will be offered for this webinar. 

Presented by: Dennis P. Driscoll, P.E., Brd. Cert. in Noise Control, FAIHA

The DoD Hearing Center of Excellence Celebrates 10 Years!

The DoD Hearing Center of Excellence (HCE) is honoring 10 Years of collaboration! In recognition that hearing is a critical sense for our Service members and Veterans, the DoD established the center in response to the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2009 (P.L. 110-417, Sec 721), and HCE was officially stood up in December 2010, when Air Force Col. (ret) Dr. Mark Packer took the helm. The HCE’s mission is to provide support to enhance operational performance, medical readiness, and quality of life through collaborative leadership and advocacy for hearing and balance health.

 special 10th anniversary edition of HCE's newsletter that highlights benchmarks they have achieved with their national and international collaborators, along with plans for their future journey.
