The Ontario Hydro Noise Control and Hearing Conservation Program
AbstractThe need to protect workers' hearing prompted Ontario Hydro Management to set up a Noise Control and Hearing Conservation program in 1984. Some elements of the program (e.g., use of hearing protectors, noise control measures, and hearing tests) have been already in place since the early 70s. However, there was an identified need for a comprehensive package in which requirements and responsibilities would be listed. This paper lists and explains the basic elements of the Program.
