Hearing Protection

The Syracuse University Hearing Conservation Program (HCP) has been established for the protection of University personnel from long-term hearing loss associated with excessive noise levels in the workplace. The program is designed to meet the requirements of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) occupational noise exposure standard, and includes procedures for noise evaluations, noise control methods, annual training, annual hearing audiograms, and hearing protective device selection and fitting.

Employees of the University that have been assigned hearing protection to reduce workplace noise exposures from excessive noise are expected to fulfill the requirements of the University’s HCP.

EHSS has developed a short noise awareness video that introduces the basics behind noise and harmful levels. This video does not fulfill the annual training requirement for those enrolled in the HCP.

For those that are required to fulfill the annual training requirement, please click on the training link in the Quick Links section below.
