Training is necessary to help workers understand how and why they need to protect their hearing. Workers who understand the reasons for the hearing conservation programs and the need to protect their hearing will be more motivated to wear their protectors and undergo audiometric tests.
Employers must train employees exposed to TWAs of 85 dB and above at least annually in the effects of noise; the purpose, advantages, and disadvantages of various types of hearing protectors, the selection, fit and care of protectors, the purpose and procedures of audiometric testing.
