The construction equipment found on many typical job sites has the potential to cause significant hearing damage, some after just a few minutes of exposure. The NIOSH Permissible Exposure Time measures the amount of time it takes a certain level of noise to cause significant hearing damage without the use of PPE.

The of use PPE helps mitigate reduce hearing damage and extends the length of time workers can safely be exposed to a particular noise volume. And training employees in the proper use of their PPE can help you avoid one of OSHA's top 10 most frequently cited violations.

Are you aware of the decibel levels of the tools you use on the job?

Yes, I am aware of decibel levels in a sheet metal shop. The hammer-gun is incredibly loud. I wear ear protection every day.
