Hearing Conservation

For Faculty, Non-Hospital Staff

Hearing conservation training discusses OSHA's Occupational Noise Exposure Standard (29 CFR 1910.95), effects of noise on hearing, use and maintenance of hearing protection devices and audiometric evaluations.

This 1-hour training class is mandatory for all employees whose job classifications may involve duties in areas which result in noise exposures equal to or in excess of an 8-hour time-weighted average (TWA) of 85 decibels and therefore are included in the Hearing Conservation Program. To date, this includes Facilities Services' engineers, trades, service crew and steam plant employees.

NOTE: Annual refresher training is required for this training class which is now available on-line. To meet your annual Hearing Conservation training requirements through the on-line version, please refer to the University’s Chalk site using the instructions below.

  • Mozilla Firefox is the recommended browser;
  • Login using your CNetID and password;
  • Click on “Community” located in the upper right hand portion of the screen;
  • Under the “Safety Training Classes” section on the right side of the screen, click on “Hearing Conservation”;
  • Remember to turn up the volume on your computer speakers to hear the audio; and
  • The introduction module will begin automatically.
  • NOTE: Please print the training booklet for reference during the lecture class.

    A cancellation fee of $50.00 will be assessed if you do not cancel your registration at least 10 business days in advance.
