The Labor Department and OSHA are challenging entrepreneurs to develop solutions for preventing workplace hearing loss, with the “Hear and Now – Noise Safety Challenge,” they announced recently.
According to OSHA, 22 million workers risk losing their hearing from workplace hazards every year, while hearing loss disability costs $242 million annually in worker’s compensation.
Suggested topics for ideas were listed as: technology that will enhance training and improve the use of hearing protection, technology that alerts workers when hearing protection is not blocking enough noise.
