3M is one of PK Safety’s most trusted brands and one of the very best in the safety industry. Their hearing protection products can assist supervisors in creating a safer workplace and help workers protect their hearing in different ways. Hearing protection is necessary for those in construction, law enforcement, heavy manufacturing, and so many more industries with hazards that can cause discomfort or permanent hearing loss.
Knowing how to choose the right hearing protection equipment will be based on a number of variables. Your work environment will not only determine the level of noise you need to protect against, but your job responsibilities will dictate what you need to hear and how you need to communicate.
For protection against continuous loud noises, earplugs are a great option, not to mention inexpensive for the level of protection they offer. Earplugs come in a variety of options to fit everyone’s comfort needs.
Variable noise level protection is well-suited for workers who need protection from loud noises, but also allows them to hear the sounds around them when the noise volume is lower. Specialized 3M headsets and earplugs can help with this.
If communication is a priority, you still need hearing protection and the ability to hear more clearly than the protection offered by variable noise level gear. Headsets with built-in hearing protection and two-way radios are going to be your best option.
