Description:The Hearing Protector Device Compendium is a comprehensive searchable database of commercial hearing protection devices. This unique Web tool was created by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health to help workers and safety professionals select the most appropriate product for their unique environment. The tool identifies hearing protector devices by type, manufacturer, and noise exposure level. It also explains essential product features, including desired noise reduction ratings, mean attenuations, standard deviations of attenuations, protector construction and materials, and other features that can aid the selection of protectors for specific situations. The Compendium contributes to the protection of workers in all industries including manufacturing, mining, and construction by contributing to the reduction of incidences of occupational noise-induced hearing loss and increasing awareness about noise hazards and solutions. The Compendium can ultimately empower workers to seek more effective hearing conservation measures.
