Hearing conservation programs strive to prevent initial occupational hearing loss, preserve and protect remaining hearing, and equip workers with the knowledge and hearing protection devices necessary to safeguard themselves. Employers are required to measure noise levels; provide free annual hearing exams, hearing protection, and training; and conduct evaluations of the adequacy of the hearing protectors in use (unless changes made to tools, equipment, and schedules result in worker noise exposure levels that are less than the 85 dBA). Research indicates that workplaces with appropriate and effective hearing conservation programs have higher levels of worker productivity and a lower incidence of absenteeism.
Millions of workers are required to wear respirators in various workplaces throughout the United States. Respirators protect workers against insufficient oxygen environments,
harmful dusts, fogs, smokes, mists, gases, vapors, and sprays. These hazards may cause cancer, lung impairment, diseases, or death. Compliance with the OSHA /MSHA Respiratory Protection Standard could avert hundreds of deaths and thousands of illnesses annually.

Do you have trucks in your company that carries a gross vehicle rating of 10,001 lbs or greater? If so then your company must be in total compliance with the FMCSA.
These are some of the reasons that a
trucking company, to survive, must have a successful compliance program
*In the transportation industry no trucking company can afford to operate without an effective and well-managed compliance program.
*A company that fails to maintain a satisfactory rating with the USDOT is subject to paying higher insurance
premiums or the possibility of being unable to obtain insurance
* Compliance reviews conducted by Federal/ State agents can result in out of service orders being placed against a company, in addition to large fines being levied against the company.
