National Hearing Conservation Association Receives Award in Class Action Suit

Westminster, CO  December 16, 2013 – The National Hearing Conservation Association (NHCA) was the recipient of a cy pres award as a part of the settlement of a class action suit against Motorola and other Bluetooth manufacturers. A cy pres award is a dollar amount awarded to a non-profit organization which furthers the interests of those damaged by the possible wrong doing.  The NHCA was selected as a recipient due to wide-spread recognition of its long-standing mission of preventing noise-induced and other avoidable hearing loss in all sectors of society.

Although no admissions of guilt were made or implied, these manufacturers settled claims against them for violating rules and regulations which were in place to protect the hearing of consumers.  Specifically, the lawsuit claimed that consistent spikes in decibel levels, in conjunction with long term use of Bluetooth headsets could cause temporary and permanent hearing damage.  The claims alleged further that no warnings were properly made to alert consumers that their hearing was at risk.  The settlement requires all Bluetooth manufacturers to place visible warnings in the proper instruction books to alert users of the potential risks.

Evan Nass, Esq., lead plaintiff in the lawsuit, selected the NHCA as the recipient for the cy pres award, due to the organization’s “unyielding advocacy for the prevention of hearing loss.”  “Our hearing is a precious commodity.  The NHCA serves as a tireless guardian for this sense, which is too often ignored or neglected by society.”

The award will be utilized by the NHCA Scholarship Foundation to foster research and encourage student involvement in hearing loss prevention, and by the NHCA to further its efforts to prevent hearing loss.  These efforts include an annual conference, publication of new research in hearing loss prevention in The International Journal of Audiology, and outreach to both affiliated professions and the general public.

According to NHCA President Jennifer Tufts, “NHCA is a small organization with big ideas and a big mission.  With the cy pres award, we can put more of our ideas into action.  We are very grateful to Mr. Nass for selecting NHCA as the recipient of this award.”

Honeywell Safety Products QUIETPRO QP100Ex Provides Intelligent Communications, Hearing Protection to Oil & Gas Industry

SMITHFIELD, RHODE ISLAND, USA — Honeywell Safety Products’ QUIETPRO® QP100Ex provides intelligent communication and hearing protection system for the oil and gas industry. The system provides life-critical communication and smart, verifiable hearing protection to workers in high-noise environments.

Based on advanced communications technology deployed by the world’s military forces in harsh and challenging noise environments, the QUIETPRO QP100Ex represents the next generation of “intelligent communication technologies” for use in the offshore oil and gas industry.

Workers on offshore oil platforms and in other extreme environments can face life-threatening risks during each and every hour of their shift. Maintaining adequate levels of speech communications and situational awareness, and protection from permanent hearing loss due to exposure to high levels of hazardous noise, are among those that are critical to maintaining their own personal safety and long-term well-being.

Honeywell has tesed the QP100Ex on platforms with leading international oil and gas companies in the North Sea. In a two-year study, platform workers were assigned their own QP100Ex unit as they performed their duties — ranging from drilling to working in the compressor rooms, to the machine rooms, to the helicopter decks.

QUIETPRO QP100Ex features include:

  • The clearest communication and situational awareness in rapidly changing, high-noise environments. Connected to two-way com radios, QUIETPRO QP100Ex allows users to hear communication without compromising listening quality, even in high-noise situations. Through its in-ear headset, QUIETPRO QP100Ex captures voice transmission inside the ear canal via air conduction, enabling users to speak at a normal level and be heard by the person on the other radio without picking up environmental noises — compressors or pumps in engine rooms, steel forging equipment, or draglines in surface mines — or compromising speech intelligibility.
  • The fastest adaptive hearing protection for superior situational awareness and understanding in rapidly changing noise environments. QUIETPRO QP100Ex improves a worker’s two-way communication and speech intelligibility, especially in high noise. Its patented digital Active Noise Reduction (ANR) technology delivers revolutionary results by continuously monitoring ambient sound, and reducing the levels of noise across the spectrum of frequencies to acceptable levels in real time. This allows workers to hear ambient sounds at safe levels — even with intermittent and impact noise — and provides increasing low-frequency attenuation for clear, intelligible communications.
  • Real-time personal noise exposure monitoring and fit check validation to prevent hearing loss. Through patented in-ear dosimetry, microphones inside each eartip measure every sound that reaches the user’s ear, supplying continuous monitoring of personal noise exposure. Audible and visual signals alert workers when they are approaching or have met their daily noise dose. This enables safety managers and workers to address the potential of noise-induced hearing loss in real time. Not only can this information prevent further occupational hearing loss, it can improve productivity by streamlining worker deployment, matching shift hours with permissible exposures more efficiently. In addition, a patented automatic fit check at startup performs a quick calibration check to detect proper fit, and to validate adequate hearing protection and clear communication in each ear. Users are alerted if a minimum level of protection is not achieved and a refit is required.
  • Intrinsically safe for use throughout potentially explosive environments.

Based on customers’ continuing experience with QUIETPRO, the technology is now being introduced to the oil and gas industry — as an advanced communications and hearing protection solution for use on offshore oil platforms.

In addition, the QUIETPRO system has received the NTNU and SINTEF Technology Award — recognizing the technology as a pioneering, first-time application of innovative and advanced technology and its significant value-creating potential for business, industry and/or society in general.

The new QUIETPRO QP100Ex from Honeywell Safety Products is available from industrial PPE distributors. For more information, visit http://honeywellsafety.com/quietpro.

A series of free HearForever® by Howard Leight seminars to help safety professionals improve their hearing conservation programs and prevent noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) in the workplace will be presented during April in North Dakota and Montana.

The seminars, titled “HearForever®: Best Practices in Effective Hearing Conservation,” will provide the latest information on hearing loss prevention, how to create a culture of safety, and the latest research, technologies, and solutions to help companies improve their hearing conservation programs — and their bottom line.

Noise-induced hearing loss has been described as the world’s most prevalent occupational injury,” said Hearing Conservation Manager Theresa Y. Schulz, PhD., Lt. Col. USAF (Retired), of Honeywell Safety Products, who will lead the seminar. “But, with the proper education, motivation, and protection, it’s also 100% preventable.”

The half-day seminar —approved for continuing education credit by ABIH (American Board of Industrial Hygiene) — is designed for industrial hygienists, occupational health and safety professionals, audiologists, trainers, occupational nurses, and liability and risk management professionals. Topics will include:

  • Basics of Noise-Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL)
  • Key Elements of an Effective Hearing Conservation Program
  • How to Use Leading Indicators in a Hearing Conservation Program to Stop Hearing Loss
  • Case Studies from Successful Hearing Conservation Programs
  • Employee Motivation and Training Techniques/Resources
  • Reducing Costs for Hearing Loss

The seminar will take place from 9 a.m. to Noon at the following locations:

  • Billings, MT, on Monday, April 22, 2013, at the Hilton Garden Inn, 2465 Grant Rd.
  • Dickinson, ND, on Tuesday, April 23, 2013, at the Ramada Grand Dakota Lodge, 532 15th Street West
  • Bismarck, ND, on Wednesday, April 24, 2013, at the Ramada Bismarck Hotel, 1400 East Interchange Ave.
  • Minot, ND, on Thursday, April 25, 2013, at the Grand International Hotel, 1505 North Broadway.

Attendees will receive free training materials, literature, and hearing protection samples. They will also participate in hands-on demonstrations of new hearing conservation technologies, including the VeriPRO® fit-testing system for measuring earplug fit, and the QUIETPRO®, an advanced in-ear communication system for high noise environments.

New Howard Leight® Impact Sport MIL Earmuff Provides Active Hearing Protection, Meets Federal Procurement Requirements

SMITHFIELD, RHODE ISLAND, USA — Honeywell Safety Products today introduced a special version of the Howard Leight® Impact® Sport MIL sound amplification earmuff, providing passive hearing protection from firearms and other hazardous noise with enhanced situational awareness. This special version of the earmuff, produced in the United States, meets purchasing requirements set for US Federal government agencies and branches of the armed forces.

New Howard Leight® Impact Sport MIL Earmuff Provides Active Hearing Protection, Meets Federal Procurement Requirements

On the range and in the field, personal hearing protection from firearms and other hazardous noises must be balanced with one’s ability to hear range commands and maintain full situational awareness. Through sound management technologies, the Howard Leight Impact Sport MIL enables wearers to safely protect themselves from a wide range of noise and to stay connected with their environment without compromising their target performance.

The top selling electronic hearing protector in the shooting sports market, Impact Sport MIL is focused towards Hearing Conservation and shooting programs at government agencies, in law enforcement, and in certain military applications where soldiers and civilians are required to wear hearing protection on the shooting ranges, areas where hazardous noise is intermittent, and/or where clear communication is essential.

Situational Awareness

The Impact Sport MIL earmuff provides both passive hearing protection and enhanced situational awareness through ambient sound amplification and sound level limitation technologies. Impact Sport employs built-in directional microphones that amplify range commands and other ambient sounds up to a safe 82 dBA, providing more natural listening and enhancing communication. When ambient sound is above 82 dBA, the listening circuit automatically compresses the ambient sound down to a safe listening level. Additional features include:

  • Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) 22 for adequate passive hearing protection.
  • Sound amplification which may provide additional hearing assistance for users with existing hearing impairment.

Designed for Shooting

Impact Sport’s ultra-slim earcup design features cut-outs for full clearance of firearm stock, eliminating interference while shooting. Hunter green earcups provide additional coverage when in the field. The earmuff also features:

  • Convenient folding design for easy storage.
  • Included 3.5mm cable which connects to MP3 players or other personal listening devices.
  • Battery life of up to 350 hours, from 2 AAA batteries (included), and automatic shut-off after 4 hours.

 Improved Comfort

From its padded leatherette headband to its easy headband adjustment for a secure, non-slip fit, Impact Sport offers increased comfort, especially for long-term wear. Additional features include:

  • Patented Air Flow Control™ technology for optimal attenuation across all frequencies with no increase in earcup size or weight.
  • Telescopic height adjustment for optimized comfort and fit.

The new Howard Leight Impact Sport MIL sound amplification earmuffs (SKU # R-01526-MIL) are immediately available for purchase from industrial safety and PPE distributors throughout the US.
