Optimization of hearing protection (fit-test)

Who is the optimization of hearing protection service for? 

This service is for any workers exposed to high levels of noise during their working hours. Our team can assess the level of effectiveness of a hearing protection device depending on the shape of an employee's ears and insertion method (fit test). In addition, our team can provide custom-made protection equipment (custom moulded plugs) and coaching on appropriate wear. Studies show that about 40% of workers do not wear their protectors optimally. How many of your employees does this figure represent?


Standards EN 458: 2016 and Z94.2-14 report the need to carry out a hearing protection fit-test on a regular basis, i.e. maximum every 2 years. This allows us to determine if it is really effective depending on the shape of the ear canal and the insertion (fit test).
