3M offers free interactive seminar for hearing protection equipment end users
5 January 2011
Diversified technology company 3M is inviting end users of hearing protection equipment (HPE) to a free, hands-on, interactive seminar to help them ensure their employees are properly protected and to get the most out of the company’s range of innovative HPE products.
At the event at 3M’s UK headquarters in Bracknell on Wednesday 23 February, delegates will have the chance to find out more about the role of HPE in worker protection through a series of educational and informative presentations from 3M technical specialists.
The 3M team will also explain the 3M Hearing Conservation Programme – an on-site service provided to end users involving training on the noise levels they face, the health effects of excessive noise, and how to select, correctly fit and maintain HPE products.
Live product demonstrations will be followed by the chance for delegates to try on and handle a variety of products from the 3M HPE range and discuss their own hearing conservation issues with their peers and 3M representatives at a ‘feedback forum’.
They will also be able to book a session to try 3M’s E-A-Rfit Validation System, an objective, quantitative hearing protector fit-test system which in a matter of seconds delivers a Personal Attenuation Rating - the noise reduction level achieved for a given hearing protector by an individual worker.
The seminar is suitable for anyone in any industry wanting to learn more about the vital importance of hearing protection – whether they are dedicated health and safety professionals or others with responsibility for workplace health and safety. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
Sue Poole of 3M’s Occupational Health & Environmental Safety Division commented: “At 3M our offering goes well beyond the provision of products – we believe it is vital to work with both employers and end users to ensure they are making the right choices and using the products optimally. The feedback we receive at these and other events also provides input to the development of future platforms of 3M personal protective equipment.”
