Module Learning Objectives

To reduce the potential for personal injury or death by
providing fundamental knowledge on the hazards of noise in
our facilities.

To prepare you for the Verification Test that follows this
training module.
– Note that the verification is closed book
– Verification must be based solely upon your own work. Once you begin,
you may not refer to any documentation other than the verification itself,
unless the instructions clearly identify a specific document that may be
used. Further, it is not permissible to use another person's work, have
possession of the verification solutions, or receive assistance during the
verification (other than intervention needed to protect personnel or

EFFECTS OF HIGH NOISE LEVELS ON HEARING Sound and Noise • Sound – Results from air pressure waves generated by vibration or movement that we detect (hear) • Noise – Is Unwanted Sound Global Manufacturing Training SAF-111 − Noise Hazards Menu Slide 10 of 48 .

When this occurs. it is referred to as “Hearing Loss” • Exposures to high noise levels can cause two broad types of hearing loss: Temporary Hearing Loss or Permanent Hearing Loss Global Manufacturing Training SAF-111 − Noise Hazards Menu Slide 11 of 48 .EFFECTS OF HIGH NOISE LEVELS ON HEARING Hazards of High Noise Levels • Exposure to high noise levels can cause a reduction in the ability to hear low sound levels.

• Exposure to high noise levels can cause some of these hairs to be over-stimulated and lose their ability to detect sound causing a “temporary hearing loss”. • Complete hearing capability is typically restored after 16 to 48 hours away from the high noise levels.EFFECTS OF HIGH NOISE LEVELS ON HEARING Hazards of High Noise Levels: Temporary Hearing Loss • Small hair-like receptors found in the “Inner Ear” are responsible for detecting sound.

The ears can not recover from permanent noise damage. • A single exposure to loud noise can also cause permanent hearing loss.EFFECTS OF HIGH NOISE LEVELS ON HEARING Hazards of High Noise Levels: Permanent Hearing Loss • Repeated temporary hearing loss can result in permanent hearing loss. There is no way to restore hearing once there is permanent damage.

EFFECTS OF HIGH NOISE LEVELS ON HEARING Noise Hazards • Noise is a common hazard found in many workplaces WARNING Excessive Noise will cause permanent hearing loss unless proper engineering controls are in place and complied with and proper personal protection is used.
