  • Key elements of an effective hearing conservation program;
  • Impending changes to the noise reduction rating (NRR) and how it impacts participants’ hearing conservation programs;
  • Case studies from successful hearing conservation programs;
  • Employee motivation and training techniques and resources;
  • Reducing costs for hearing loss.

The half-day seminars will take place from 9 a.m. to noon at the following locations:
