Once you have detected your noise level, it is critical to select a hearing protector that your employees are motivated to wear:


3M has the broadest selection of hearing protectors for a wide range of environments. Trouble fitting your plugs? Need to communicate in noise? Dirty hands? Hot, humid conditions? These are just a few of the many challenges that 3M's innovative products can solve for you.

3M experts are available for consultation on your specific hearing protection challenge.


Not every member of your workforce will know all the benefits of hearing conservation, or understand how best to use their protection. 3M can help take the weight of educating them off your shoulders.

Education builds commitment to hearing conservation. The more that users believe in the value of protection, the more they’re protected.
