Overview

Workers in many occupational sectors – including manufacturing, mining, construction, transportation, and emergency services – often perform their jobs while exposed to high levels of occupational noise. Long-term exposure to noise can result in both hearing loss and stress-related illness. In addition, noise can interfere with critical communications and warning signals. For these reasons, it is critically important to identify these hazardous situations and implement preventative measures to help protect the hearing of workers. The first in a series of standards on occupational noise control, CSA Z1007 Hearing loss prevention program (HLPP) management helps address these potential threats to worker health and safety. The standard helps guide your business in establishing a management process for an effective hearing loss prevention program and is part of CSA Group’s portfolio of OHS Management Systems Standards, based on the foundation of Z1000 Occupational Health and Safety Management.
