Considering that over a quarter of U.S. Workers (41 Million) report working in noisy environments, this study should be taken seriously by all employers. If you're an employer, we encourage you to review NIOSH's guide to Reducing Noise Exposure, which covers guidance and regulations, protective equipment, noise controls, and noise level information. Employers should also encourage employees to be screened for high blood pressure and cholesterol regularly. This will allow for both the employer and employee to intervene at the first sign of an issue.
