Buy Quiet – For Manufacturers

Noise-induced hearing loss is one of the most common work-related illness in the United States. Each year approximately 22 million U.S. workers are exposed to noise loud enough to damage their hearing. To create a more healthful workplace, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) recommends preventing hazardous noise through controls for noise exposure (http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/topics/noise…) and encourages business owners to create Buy Quiet (http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/topics/buyquiet) programs as a first step.
