Incorporating the New ANSI S12.68 method and all attenuation
formulas, Bertrand-Johnson Acoustics (BJA) has developed a program matching workstation
or task noise exposure levels with various hearing protectors;
providing the most adequate protection to noise exposure while
avoiding safety hazards from overprotection. Let BJA help you
select the most adequate HPD for your workers.
Save time in selecting
the most suitable HPD for a job
For OHS managers, making the most suitable choice from
supplier catalogues and technical data sheets can be
a complex and arduous
task. With this service, your OHS manager not only saves
valuable time, but also makes an informed technical choice.
Offer better hearing protection to your employees.
One of the main objectives of a HCP is to prevent or halt the
progression of NIHL. By selecting the most
suitable HPD for a specific workstation, your employees are the winners.
Reduce the risk of accident and injury due to over-protection.
Over-protection often isolates the worker from the environment.
Accidents result from non perception or non
localization of warning signals or verbal warnings, and sometimes produce serious
injury – even death. A properly selected
HPD allows you to avoid over-protection while
cutting out the risk from harmful
the selection process for purchasers of HPDs
BJA HPD analysis is objective. The cost of a HPD should not
be the primary reason for purchase, nor
does unit cost alone represent the best value. BJA’s program includes
the complete list of the HPDs indexed in the NIOSH
Compendium. The generated report/ratio will not promote a specific supplier,
but it does provide an unbiased list
of models which meet the criteria identified in the analysis to provide
the most suitable
attenuation level. If the HPD that you
bought or whose purchase
you are considering is not included in
the NIOSH Compendium, you can forward the data sheet to us and we can add
it to the
