Honeywell Safety Products Announces Free Upgrade for VeriPRO Earplug Fit-Testing Technology

Honeywell today announced a free software upgrade for its VeriPRO® earplug fit-testing system. Based on user experience with thousands of earplug fit-tests, the upgrade to VeriPRO 3.0 offers users a more efficient, versatile, and user-friendly experience.

Honeywell today announced a free software upgrade for its VeriPRO® earplug fit-testing system. Based on user experience with thousands of earplug fit-tests, the upgrade to VeriPRO 3.0 offers users a more efficient, versatile, and user-friendly experience.

SMITHFIELD, R.I., (December 1, 2014) —  Honeywell’s VeriPRO system enables safety managers to easily create an accurate, real-world picture of their employees’ hearing protection. With VeriPRO, managers can determine the individual protection level of a worker fitted with any earplugs through a simple listening test — and then decide whether the employee is receiving optimal protection from the earplugs, requires additional fit training, or needs to try a different model.

VeriPRO features include:

  • Measures each employee’s Personal Attenuation Rating (PAR) – the individual protection level for that worker wearing a particular earplug
  • Works with any earplug, corded or uncorded, from any manufacturer
  • Fulfills regulatory requirements to ensure proper initial fitting of hearing protection
  • Documents training and proper fit for new or existing employees
  • Provides an ideal opportunity for one-on-one education

The VeriPRO 3.0 upgrade ensures that hearing protection fit testing has never been easier by delivering:

  • More efficiency — as users can enter and edit any earplug from any manufacturer; earplug size is documented for many earplugs; and controls are improved for faster testing;
  • More versatility — as information uploading is easier; installation is available in 32-bit or 64-bit formats; and test results default to industry standard, or user-determined, measurements;
  • A more user-friendly experience — with simplified installation on Windows PCs, customized installation options, and a wider range of report formats.

The VeriPRO 3.0 upgrade is free for all currently registered VeriPRO users to download at http://www.howardleight.com/veripro/resource.

The VeriPRO 3.0 system is available from industrial safety distributors in the U.S. and Canada. For more information, visit http://www.howardleight.com/veripro.

Honeywell Safety Products Introduces New Max® Small Pink Earplugs for People With Smaller Ear Canals

SMITHFIELD, R.I., Oct. 22, 2013 — Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today introduced new MAX® Small Pink earplugs — a bright pink version of its popular orange MAX Small single-use earplug for people with smaller ear canals.

MAX Small earplugs were introduced in 2011 in response to reports from people with smaller ear canals about having trouble obtaining a good fit — and adequate protection — from other high-attenuating roll-down foam earplugs. Since the launch, user feedback about MAX Small has included requests for a version in pink.

In response, a new pink version, MAX Small Pink, has been introduced and is available now for a limited time only. MAX Small Pink earplugs features include:

  • The same bell shape and patented varied-cell polyurethane foam as the standard Howard Leight® MAX earplug — but are 20% smaller in volume;
  • A reduced size that offers workers with smaller ear canals a better and more comfortable fit;
  • A higher attenuation (NRR 30) than other larger single-use earplugs.

MAX Small Pink is available now, in both corded and uncorded models, from industrial safety distributors in the U.S. and Canada.

For more information about MAX, MAX Small, and MAX Small Pink earplugs, visit http://www.howardleight.com. High resolution images of MAX Small Pink earplugs are available for download from: http://goo.gl/rqsLnE and http://goo.gl/bdL9xo.

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.

With the new Sync Digital AM/FM Radios and Electo earmuffs, workers can not only be more productive, they will enjoy their listening experience even more. Workers and safety managers alike will appreciate the combination of the superior hearing protection and the new features — as well as Sync’s ease-of-use.

The new Sync models are:

  • Sync Digital AM/FM Radio — delivers high-fidelity audio quality with a digital interface that automatically searches for AM and FM stations, and can store up to 10 stations in memory. Features include:
    • 10 pre-set stations and volume memory for personalization for each worker.
    • Lightweight slim earcup design for all-day comfort.
    • Streamlined volume knob.
    • LCD display.
  • Sync Hi-Vis Digital AM/FM Radio — incorporates eye-catching bright green ear cups for highly noticeable contrast in dark settings to the functionality of the new Sync AM-FM Digital radio earmuff. For increased visibility and job safety, this model also features the industry’s only reflective headband that illuminates when exposed to light.
  • Sync Electo® — combines the entertainment benefits of Sync Digital AM/FM Radio with advanced sound amplification technology for improved situational awareness. Directionally-placed stereo microphones amplify and enhance ambient sound up to 82 dB, providing protection from hazardous noise while allowing workers to hear important communications, including alarms, warning signals, and co-workers voices. Features include:
    • Separate volume knobs to adjust radio and sound amplification.
    • Available in headband and helmet models. The helmet models include a set of adapters to use with popular helmets.

The three new models incorporate other features of Howard Leight’s original Sync Stereo earmuff, introduced in March 2011, including:

  • Passive protection from hazardous noise. Each model in the Sync family features a Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) of 25 dB (Electo H helmet NRR of 24), providing appropriate attenuation in most medium-to-low noise environments.
  • High-fidelity audio quality, connects to other devices. Sync’s sound quality is on par with other professional audio headphones.

Honeywell Safety Products Experts in Hearing Conservation to Present Research, Technology, Know-How at 2012 Professional Conferences

SMITHFIELD, RHODE ISLAND, USA — May 9, 2012 — Hearing Conservation experts from Honeywell Safety Products will present the latest research, technologies, and know-how on Hearing Conservation programs at three key upcoming industry conferences in June 2012 — American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) Safety 2012, American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) AIHce 2012, and the Audio Engineering Society Conference on Music-Induced Hearing Disorders.

“The outreach is part of the Howard Leight HearForever® initiative, which aims to help employers effectively manage their Hearing Conservation Programs and support an enduring culture of safety for the benefit of their workers as well as their bottom-line,” said Renee S. Bessette, COHC, Global Brand Manager for Hearing, Honeywell Safety Products.

The three upcoming programs are:

  • ASSE Safety 2012, June 3-6, 2012, Denver, “Stopping Noise-Induced Hearing Loss in the Workplace,” by Brad Witt, MA, CCC-A, Director of Hearing Conservation, Honeywell Safety Products. In the session, Witt will discuss how, despite 30 years of best efforts, noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) continues unabated in many industries, turning many Hearing Conservation Programs into hearing loss documentation programs. He will detail bad assumptions about hearing loss at the workplace and present data from a host of case studies that have succeeded in reducing claims for NIHL.
  • AIHce 2012, June 16-21, 2012, Indianapolis: “Does Handedness or Order of Test Effect Earplug Fit Results?” with Theresa Y. Schulz, Ph.D., (Lt. Col., retired, US Air Force), Hearing Conservation Manager, Honeywell Safety Products, and with Rick Allomong, EHS Manager, ConAgra Foods. The two experts will present — and discuss — the results of innovative testing undertaken at ConAgra Foods to explore the possibility that order biases may be present when, during the process of measuring the fit of earplugs using the Real Ear Attenuation at Threshold (REAT) method, one ear is always tested first.
  • 47th AES Conference on Music Induced Hearing Disorders, June 20-22, 2012, Chicago:Workplace Noise Regulations in the Music Industry: A Square Peg and a Round Hole” by Robert M. Ghent, Jr., Au.D., Acoustical Test Laboratory Manager, Honeywell Safety Products. With the possibility that stricter enforcement of workplace noise regulations may be on the way for the US audio industry, Ghent will overview those regulations – and their history, enforcement, and implications for the entertainment industry. He’ll also review what the US might learn from EU regulations and discuss EU best practices that can be adopted immediately in the US.

The Howard Leight HearForever® initiative — which includes participation in key industry conferences as well as employer workshops, regional seminars, the HearForever.org website, and a host of social media efforts — provides information on the latest advances, research, and discoveries of noise-induced hearing loss detection and prevention to employers. The website, www.hearforever.org, offers an extensive source for educational, informative and motivational materials including articles, case studies, white papers, presentations, and tools to educate about hearing loss prevention at work and at home.

“Since its launch last fall, MAX Small has caught the ‘ear’ of safety professionals and workers who seek a smaller-sized foam earplug,” Bessette said.

In addition to all of the features of MAX earplugs, MAX Small’s reduced size offers workers with smaller ear canals best-in-class fit, protection (NRR 33), and in-ear comfort. MAX Small has the same bell shape and patented varied-cell polyurethane foam as the standard MAX earplug, though is 20% smaller in geometry.

At Shaw Industries, Personalized Ear Plug Fit Testing Overcomes Challenges to Worker Hearing Protection – New Case Study

SMITHFIELD, RHODE ISLAND, USA, September 14, 2011 – In late 2009, Kenny Dillard, faced seemingly insurmountable environmental challenges to the Hearing Conservation program at a Dalton, Ga., manufacturing facility of Shaw Industries Group, Inc., the world’s largest carpet manufacturer and a leading floor covering provider.

Although the company invests in engineering and administrative controls to reduce noise levels, and continues to look for ways to decrease the exposure in the work environment, hearing protection is still needed for many workers. Meanwhile, the local climate, which generates both extreme heat and humidity, often makes the wearing of earmuffs uncomfortable.

The solution, Dillard decided, was to “get personal” with an innovative program that integrates the Howard Leight® VeriPRO® ear plug fit testing system with one-on-one training, resulting in personal validation and self-efficacy.

At Shaw, the new VeriPRO ear plug fit testing program “represents an on-going investment in workers and their personal safety” that resulted in what Dillard believes has evolved into a true one-on-one Hearing Conservation Program. “To get where we are now meant that we had to change our whole mindset — to realize that it’s all about each and every individual — and what fits them well,” he said.

The program proved to be an overwhelming success, earning Shaw the 2011 Safe-in-Sound Award for Best Practices in Hearing Conservation, presented by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and the National Hearing Conservation Association (NHCA).

The program is also the subject of a new case study which traces Dillard’s progress through each stage of the program’s development and implementation, from “Doubling Up for Safety” to “Ear Plug Fit Testing and Verification” to “Ear Plug Selection, Protection, and Training” to “Personal Validation” – providing a detailed blueprint for safety, industrial hygiene, plant managers, and others to emulate at their own facilities.
