Though the saying, "CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW," was made famous by a cell phone company, it’s very appropriate for construction work. Hearing loss is too common nowadays. More and more “seasoned” construction workers are below normal when their hearing is tested, and it’s usually not tested until there is a considerable loss or their family has to shout, “Can you hear me now?”
On April 7, 2015, MBI will be hosting a webinar that will address what the OSHA regulations say, what types of programs contractors should have in place, and what really causes hearing loss. Workers compensation adjusters are saying that they are having more hearing loss claims than 10 years ago, and it’s costing more and more to settle them. This is an injury that can be easily prevented, doesn’t take much effort to control, but yet affects all construction trades. If you would like more information or to register, please CLICK HERE.
