Combat Workplace Noise Pollution to Help Prevent Hearing Loss

November 09, 2015, Posted in News

Yikes! Hearing loss is the third-leading major U.S. public health issue.

By Mary Padron, published on Sep 01, 2015

According to John Hopkins Medicine and the Hearing Loss Association of America, "Hearing loss is the third leading major public health issue, affecting 48 million Americans, or 20% of the adult population." Arthritis leads the way, followed by heart disease. Sixty percent of people with hearing loss are either in the workforce or in educational settings.

One of the leading culprits of hearing loss is workplace noise pollution, which can lead to noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL). Over-exposure to high-noise environments occurs at factories, airports, construction sites, NASCAR races, rock concerts, and on our highways. According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, industries that include mining, agriculture, construction, manufacturing, utilities, transportation, and the military run the highest risk of NIHL noise pollution. Over-exposure to noise has serious consequences to our well-being and hearing, including auditory and non-auditory effects:

  • temporary, mild, or permanent hearing loss
  • tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
  • physical and mental stress
  • reduced concentration and communication
  • loss of productivity
  • increased probability of work-related accidents and injury
  • heart palpitations
  • aggressive behavior
  • exhaustion
What is NIHL?

According to the World Health Organization, noise-induced hearing loss "is the most common, permanent, and preventable occupational injury in the world."

Noise-induced hearing loss may happen suddenly from an explosive type of blast or gradually over time as a worker is continuously exposed to noise above 85 dB without wearing proper hearing protection. Unfortunately, NIHL is an invisible pollutant, so it is often relegated to the back burner while eye protection and high-visibility protection take the job site spotlight. We can't see, taste, touch, or smell noise, and there is no obvious wound or blood—but every workplace should have a hearing conversation program, especially because hearing loss affects millions of workers.

What if you had to continuously listen to your blow dryer or to a juice blender (approximately 80 to 95 dB) for eight hours every day? Surely you would cringe at the thought and become quite agitated. Unfortunately, in numerous industrial settings, millions of American workers are assaulted and exposed to dangerous levels of noise (85 dB or above) every single workday.

How to Combat Workplace NIHL

Three weapons in your hearing loss prevention toolbox are (1) education, (2) "buy quiet" practices, and (3) the use of hearing protection devices (HPDs).

Education and training

Educate your workers and safety specialists about hearing loss by distributing informational brochures, by placing posters and caution signs in key traffic areas, and through annual training programs, which are required by OSHA "whenever employee noise exposures are at or above an eight hour time-weighted average (TWA) of 85 dBA or, equivalently, a dose of 50 percent, which is considered the action level."

"Buy Quiet” practices and other controls

When purchasing new equipment, nip noise in the bud by specifying the acceptable sound output for any new machinery. Be adamant about your sound requirements with your buyers and purchasing agents. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that a national "Buy Quiet" purchasing movement is in place to get the military and corporations to buy "ear friendly" machinery.  Hopefully, as technology improves, this "Buy Quiet" trend will gain greater momentum.

To deal with existing high-noise equipment and environments, consider engineering controls such as silencers, mufflers, and specially constructed acoustic walls to help remove sound. Administrative controls, such as moving workers to a safe area or limiting their time around the sound annoyance, is also effective in reducing noise exposure.

Hearing protection devices

When engineering and administrative controls are not successful in reducing noise exposure, hearing protection devices must be used. OSHA requires that employees be offered a variety of hearing protection devices, including ear muffs and ear plugs.

Just as ears, ear canals, and heads come in many different shapes and sizes, so do the many hearing protection devices available in the marketplace today. There are three primary types of noise related to HPD use: constant, intermittent, and impact/impulse. Constant noise requires single-use hearing protection, multi-use banded hearing protection, or ear muffs. Intermittent noise requires banded hearing protection or ear muffs. Impact or impulse noises are the most severe and require the highest passive noise reducers, double plugging, or electronic/active HPDs.

Which HPD Is Right For Your Safety Program?

Ear plugs

In the 1970s, NASA developed memory foam to assist astronauts with overwhelming G forces. This material was later adapted to make single-use ear plugs because of its slow recovery capabilities and softness. When choosing foam ear plugs, make sure the plugs are self-adjustable, non-irritating, comfortable, and offer the most protection, with NRRs of up to 33dB. Bullet, barrel, bell, and winged shapes exist to fit a large variety of ear canal shapes and sizes. Foam ear plugs are available in fluorescent safety focused colors to aid in compliance verification and many of them are made in the USA.

They come corded and uncorded, plus a variety of packaging options exist, including individually wrapped plugs or bulk options to be placed in dispensers for easy access in high-traffic, high-noise areas. Disposable foam plugs are ideal for big companies with lots of workers who go through large quantities of plugs quickly.

In addition to disposable foam ear plugs, reusable, custom molded, and baffle type ear plugs are available. Reusable plugs are made of silicone, polyvinyl, and other types of rubber. These non-porous plugs can be cleaned with warm water and soap. Custom molded plugs provide a super comfortable and personalized fit and are a favorite among workers, hunters, and musicians because of the proper fit. Baffle plugs have a sound-activated baffle/valve inside that will close when exposed to an impulse noise such as a gunshot. Baffle plugs feature technology that allows normal conversation when no impulse noise is present, allowing workers to hear commands and conversation.

Banded hearing protection and ear muffs

When hearing protection is intermittent, banded hearing protection can be a good lightweight alternative to ear muffs. Banded hearing protection is easy to remove and is designed to hang conveniently around the neck, which means the HPD is always within reach, doesn't touch dirty or oily surfaces, and allows for quick communication.

Ear muffs can be either passive or active. Both are easy to fit properly and come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and styles to fit a wide range of users. NRRs also vary greatly and can be as low as 17dB or as high as 30dB. Ear muffs can be worn over the head, behind the ear, under the chin, and as a hard hat attachment. They are available with lots of value-added features, such as gel-pad cushions on the cups, padded headbands, compact folding headbands, and multi-position headbands.  Because ear muffs are very visible, they make it easy for safety officers to check for compliance.

Active ear muffs use electronic circuitry to cut or compress harmful impulse noises above 85 dB down to a safe level. Ear muffs that feature compression technology will reduce impulse noise to a safe level of 82dB while still allowing you to communicate. Ear muffs that use cutting technology will cut out all impulse noise completely. Some ear muffs also feature microphones that enhance/amplify hearing. Although the recommended use for active ear muffs is with the electronics on, they can be switched off. When the electronics are turned off, the active ear muff then functions as a passive ear muff and can be used in any environment. When the electronics are on, active ear muffs should be used only to protect against impulse noise.

When selecting hearing protection for your safety program always consider the type of noise—continuous or intermittent—the long-term cost, and worker preference. Worker compliance is one of the primary factors when considering the effectiveness of any HPD.

Why Hearing Protection Matters

All of our five senses—sight, taste, touch, smell, and hearing—are a blessing, and the sense of hearing is very important among the five. Think about all the precious moments you would miss if you couldn't hear. You couldn't hear "I love you" from your spouse or grandchild. You couldn't hear the music that makes you want to get up and dance. You couldn't hear the clink of crystal or the special words to loved ones when making a toast. When you can't hear properly, your performance at work declines and your impairment might even cause more accidents and injuries to occur. So protect hearing every day with quality hearing protection, not just because OSHA requirements and other federal regulations demand it. Do it because it is the right thing to do. Work hard. Stay safe.

Interview: Radians, Inc. – A Leader in Personal Protective Equipment

October 28, 2014, Posted in News

By Steve Gramins, October 22, 2014

A successful day at the range or in the field is a combination of several key factors working hand in hand: a well-maintained firearm, quality ammunition, and – perhaps, most importantly for personal safety – top-notch ear and eye protection. Memphis-based Radians, Inc., has been protecting shooters and hunters with innovative safety eyewear and hearing protection for seventeen years.

Grand View Outdoors sat down with Joe Smith, Vice President of Radians, to find out more about one of the leaders in personal protective equipment.

Grand View Outdoors:How and when did Radians get its start? 

Radians, Inc.: Radians was founded in 1997 basically on the introduction of one product, the AV, a combination hearing (Audio) and eyewear (Visual) protection product. Our focus in 1997 was Safety Eyewear and Hearing Protection in the Sporting Goods channel.  Seventeen years later, we have a comprehensive line of quality products for the Sporting Goods channel that includes premium Crossfire by Radians eyewear, electronic and passive earmuffs, disposable hearing protection, high-visibility apparel, and performance gloves. We have partnered with Remington, Bone Collector, and Smith & Wesson to provide our customers with a variety of PPE products that meet the functional and style demands of the marketplace.

GVO:Describe the particulars of your business – the services/products you offer, your typical customer, etc. 

RI: Radians offers a comprehensive line of PPE products for the Sporting Goods Industry including ANSI Z87 eyewear, electronic, passive, and disposable hearing protection, gloves, and RadWear high visibility apparel. Our products are sold through authorized distributors and can be found in major retail stores that serve the hunting, shooting, and sport enthusiast. Our end users include hunters, shooters, public safety professionals, law enforcement and first responders, and sport enthusiasts. We also have several products geared towards youth and female shooters, such as our Youth Combo Kit and pink ProAmp electronic earmuff and Pink Performance Shooting Gloves.

GVO: When and how did Radians become involved in the hunting and shooting sports? 

RI: After the introduction of the AV in 1997, Radians became more involved in the Sporting Goods industry by listening to our customers and end-users and developing a comprehensive product assortment for hunters and shooters. Radians expanded its team by adding experienced professionals that have a passion for and are active in the Shooting Sports. With this expertise, Radians was able to introduce new products, such as custom-molded earplugs and electronic hearing protection. The success of these new products paved the way for more growth and more new products.

GVO:Describe several keys to the success and longevity of your business.

RI: Several key factors have contributed to Radians’ success and longevity. We listen to end-users, respond to market demands, and offer customer-specific solutions. We offer JIT shipments to meet the logistical demands of the sporting goods and fast-paced public safety markets – order by 3 p.m. and your in-stock item ships the same day via UPS Ground. We also offer low $250 minimum retail orders with free freight and custom imprinting with fast 7-day turnaround times. We seek continuous improvement, such as our recent NVLAP Accreditation to test and certify hearing protective devices (NVLAP Lab # 500090-0).  Plus we test our products to meet or exceed standards including ANSI Z87.1+, VO Ballistics (0.15 caliber), CSA Z94.3-1992, ASTM1506, etc. All of our products are manufactured in ISO certified facilities.

GVO: How do you work at growing your customer base? 

RI: We participate in over 15 Sporting Goods trade shows, including SHOT Show, NASGW, Distributor Shows, Buying Group Shows and more. We have a grass-roots marketing movement where we participate in shooting competitions and charity donations, such as our recent donation to the Ronald McDonald House for their Kids & Clays Foundation fundraiser. We engage in social media, email marketing, and some digital and print advertising.  Again, we listen to our customers and end-users and develop new and innovative products that appeal to our growing customer base. 

GVO: Tell us about new and exciting products for outdoor enthusiasts from Radians this year. 

RI: Outdoor enthusiasts have gravitated toward our new retail line of premium Crossfire eyewear. This protective ANSI Z87 eyewear offers protection and style in a variety of sleek designs and lens choices. We have also introduced tactical products, such as performance gloves with floating knuckle guards and VO Ballistic eyewear, for law enforcement and military. We recently redesigned some of our Remington styles and just launched a line of cooling products called Arctic Skull that includes a cooling towel, headband, and head shade.

Radians invests in automation to deliver higher levels of customer service and satisfaction

June 30, 2014, Posted in News

Radians, Inc., a leader in the personal protective equipment industry, has made a significant capital investment in warehouse automation at their Memphis headquarters.

Radians' new order fulfillment system, or pick module, from Integrated Solutions will be fully operational by July. Once completed, the automated system will become the central hub of their warehouse operations, expediting the pick and ship process for optimum product flow.

According to Radians’ President, Bill England, “our recent investment in automation is Radians’ largest equipment purchase in the company’s history. The new system will improve the speed and accuracy of order fulfillment, which always leads to higher levels of customer service and satisfaction.”

The automated system uses PathGuide software which provides real time control to get instant information about warehouse material movement and inventory status. This will enhance Radians’ ability to expedite same-day orders more efficiently than ever and will also reduce errors in shortages and overages to one in 5,000.

According to Bobbie Espitia, Radians’ Director of Supply Chain Management, “We are excited how our capital investment in automation will improve order accuracy, lower fulfillment costs, and expedite the order-fulfillment process. All of these capabilities result in making Radians a better supply chain partner to our customers.”

The benefits of automation will not only enhance customer satisfaction, it will also positively affect employee satisfaction and morale because the ergonomic design of the pick module combined with the space optimization will reduce employee fatigue and stress.

Crossfire ES4 Saves Motorist’s Eye from Danger

May 12, 2014, Posted in News

The Crossfire ES4 Glass by Radians played the part of “hero” recently when the eyewear stopped a flying rock from striking a motorist in the eye. The driver, who was cruising in The Rocky Mountains, had his driver’s side window open when two trucks kicked up a flying rock. The motorist’s eye was unharmed from the projectile because he was wearing the impact resistant Crossfire  ES4. This ANSI Z87.1+ safety glass, which prevented the rock from striking the motorist’s eye, was also instrumental in the driver staying in control of his vehicle, thus preventing a dangerous car accident from also happening.

Radians®, Inc., a leading manufacturer of quality personal protective equipment (PPE), is moving from Sparks, Nevada, to a new 40,000 square foot facility in Reno, Nevada, thereby tripling the amount of their warehouse space.

“This is a significant move and expansion for Radians as we went from 13,000 square feet with two dock doors to 40,000 square feet with 11 dock doors,” says John Dutra, Branch Manager Nevada Operations.  “Our new facility in North Reno will allow us to increase product offerings and keep more inventory to better serve our customers,” says Dutra.

The new address is 880 North Hills Blvd, Suite 505, Reno, NV 89506.  The site is scheduled to open March 31, 2014.

The new 40,000 square foot facility will possess office space, warehouse space, and operational space for Radians growing custom imprinting services which allow companies to promote their brand and logo on their safety gear.

“The additional space, fulfillment and distribution improvements that this investment brings, puts us in a stronger position to support new business growth in the West while enhancing customer service through faster turnaround times,” says Bill England, President of Radians.  “Additionally, the technological and automation enhancements will enable us to increase worker efficiency and productivity and reduce order fulfillment costs,” says England.

Radians launches new branded line of performance gloves

February 24, 2014, Posted in News

Radians®, a leading manufacturer of performance safety gear for the Industrial and Retail sectors, launches eight new gloves under its Radians’ brand. Each glove in the new product line-up was designed with technological and material innovations that provide maximum protection, high dexterity, comfort, and visibility.

Leading the way in the latest glove technologies are Radians new EN Cut Level 3 gloves: the Radians RWG530, RWG531 and the RWG532. All three gloves fit like a second skin and provide protection against puncture, tear, cut, and abrasion. The RWG531 has the added benefit of high visibility whereas the Radians RWG532 is touch screen capable, allowing workers to keep their gloves on when using touch screen machinery, phones or equipment.

Other gloves in the line-up provide superior grip and dexterity, such as the RWG11 and RWG12, with their anti-slip nitrile dotted palms. These foam dipped gloves are lightweight, breathable, comfortable and can easily be worn all day with zero hand fatigue.

Three other gloves in the new line-up, the RWG10, RWG100, and the RWG800 all provide high visibility protection while serving up other safety solutions as well. For example, the RWG10, a knit dip glove, offers durability, comfort and enhanced grip it wet conditions. The RWG100, an all purpose synthetic utility glove, has a padded double layer synthetic palm for increased durability and reflective silver fingertips to take visibility up a notch. If it’s cold outside like it is right now, you’ll be glad to have the RWG800 in your safety arsenal. This cold weather performance glove also has a REFLECTIVZ waterproof plated thermal lined palm and reflective knuckle strap keeping you comfortable, dry and visible in low light conditions. The synthetic palm is stable in price versus the traditional leathers on the market today.

 “All of our gloves,” says Dan Branson, Glove Product Manager for Radians, “provide specialized solutions to combat the hand hazards faced by workers today. We make gloves for the workers who wear them 10 hours a day, never sacrificing dexterity, comfort or protection.”
