Safety Tip of the Month
To help encourage safety in the workplace our Loss Control Department works to promote a new Safety Tip to our Group Members each month
A recent study has shown that the most common work-related injury is hearing loss. Work-related hearing loss is not unique to any particular industry, but there are ways to prevent and help minimize it including:
1. Reduce time spent in noisy areas, taking breaks often.
2. Wear ear protection appropriate for the job being performed.
3. When using foam ear plugs, follow the instructions on how to insert and remove them properly.
4. Keep volume levels in the mid-range on devices like phones and speakers.
