Hearing Protection Fit Testers
Hearing protective equipment is required for workers who are potentially exposed to excessive noise levels commonly found in factories, construction sites, mine sites and more.
Whilst the wearing of hearing protection is important to protect wearers from excessive noise levels, an inappropriate fit can lead to a compromised level of hearing protection and therefore exposing workers to harmful levels of noise.
Hearing protection fit testers like the 3M E-A-Rfit are designed to test and validate the level of protection provided by the hearing protective equipment and to ensure that it is appropriate for the worker and the type of work involved.
Hearing protection fit testing to safeguard your workforce from industrial noise
Under the AS/NZS 1269.3:2005 Occupational Noise Management Standard, the fit testing of hearing protective equipment is now mandatory across several sites and industries in Australia.
Air-Met’s range of hearing protection fit testers like the 3M E-A-Rfit Validation System provides a fast, quantitative, and objective fit test result with a Personal Attenuation Rating (PAR) for each worker tested therefore ensuring each worker receives optimal hearing protection and meeting all compliance requirements.
