Continued exposure to noise above 80dB(A) may cause permanent hearing

Choosing the correct hearing protection for your needs can be difficult;
the hearing protectors should neither over nor under protect the user.
With this in mind 3M has an easy to use selection sytem for E-A-R™ and
Peltor™ products that aids the correct selection of hearing protection
appropriate to the noise level.
Our system uses a simple, logically coloured classification to make the
selection process easy. It has its roots in the highly appreciated marking
used on the Peltor™ Optime™ range. The difference is that it is wider,
i.e. covering more noise situations.
Step by step guide to using the Optime™ Alert System and Sound Check Meter
1.
Measure the noise level
There are several ways of doing this: you may already know what
your noise level is, you could get a detailed noise assessment or use
the Optime™ Alert System - Sound Check to establish your noise band.
Alternatively you could use the Sound Check. Simply deploy the meter
at the employees work station and let it sit until the coloured display has
stabilised, this then indicates the average noise level in that area.
Above 95dB(A)
You will need to get a more accurate
noise assessment.
Above 87dB(A)
Products marked with this icon are
suitable at this noise level.
Between 87 - 93dB(A)
Products marked with these icons are suitable at
this noise level.
Between 83 - 93dB(A)
Products marked with this icon are
suitable at this noise level.
Between 83 - 85dB(A)
Products marked with these icons are suitable at
this noise level.
Between 80 - 85dB(A)
4
Products marked with this icon are
suitable at this noise level.
Optime™ Alert System
Our system uses a simple, logically coloured classification to make
the selection process easy. Firstly find out what your noise level is,
then look at the icons below and establish which noise band (RNR)
your noise level falls into. Take note of the icon and choose from the
wide range of products featuring the correct icon.
RNR* < 85dB(A)
83 dB(A) - 93 dB(A)
You do not have to wear
hearing protection,
but make it available
to your workers.
You are above the permitted exposure
level, hearing protection is compulsory.
PLEASE NOTE:
At levels above 95dB you will need an accurate noise assesment to correctly select the product.
Green and Yellow marked products are not suitable for use in low frequency noise.
*RNR = Recommended Noise Rating
87 dB(A) - 98 dB(A)
You are above the permitted exposure level,
hearing protection is compulsory. Ideal for
high frequency noise.
94dB(A) - 105dB(A)
You are above the permitted exposure level
hearing protection is compulsory. Ideal for high
and medium frequency noise.
95 dB(A) - 110 dB(A)
You are above the permitted exposure level,
hearing protection is compulsory. Ideal for
all frequencies.
Sound Check Meter
Hard Storage / Carry Case
3M also has a simple sound level indicator for its E-A-R™ and
Peltor™ products that complements the Optime™ Alert System
by establishing which colour code you need to follow. You simply
deploy the meter at the employees work station let it run until the
display has stabilised, this then indicates the average noise level
in that area and the type of protection suggested.
This strong, lockable rigid case provides a high level of protection for your
Sound Check Meter. The meter is held securely in place by high density foam
for protection against impact and vibration. Integral to the lid of the case is a
document holder to store records, posters or other documentation.
The display indicates the period of time the unit has been
active in 1 hour increments up to a maximum of an 8 hour
working day.The Sound Check meter must be restarted
between measurements.

Identifiying the corresponding icon
Choosing hearing protection
Using the Sound Check Method
If you are using the Sound Check Meter all you have to do is
match up the coloured display with the chart opposite. On the
left of the chart it identifies which icon should be exhibited on
the hearing protection.
By now you will know which icon on the
Optime Alert System relates to your noise
level, simply check the icon next to the
related product.
Using your own noise level measurement
If you are using your own measurement or a measurement
taken by another competent person then you simply look at
the Optime™ Alert System above and identify which RNR Recommended Noise Rating - your level falls under and record
the icon above.

E-A-Rfit™ System
Wearers’ ear canal shapes are different
hence fitting methods are different, resulting
in different protection levels. To help you
understand the individual protection needs
of each wearer, use the new E-A-R™
Validation System by 3M.

Exclusive Probed E-A-R™ Hearing Protectors
Including a selection of foam and pre-moulded products (see bottom of page).
Dual Element Microphone
Measures sound inside and outside the ear.
Advanced Algorithm
Utilises transfer function measurement approach to acquire reliable data in less than eight seconds.
Proprietary Application Software
Provides enhanced metrics for guidance in the application of the measured insertion loss values.
Real Fit = Real Results
The subject fits their own protector for actual on the job readings.
The technician then connects the microphone to the hearing protector’s
tube, leaving the other microphone exposed so that noise levels are
measured inside and outside the ear.
Personal Attenuation Rating (PAR)
For Each Worker In Minutes
It only takes eight seconds to obtain data at seven standard (125Hz to
8000Hz) frequencies. You’ll know the level of protection each worker
receives from each tested protector.
Data Is Documented
For Future Reference
Each worker’s personal attenuation rating (PAR) results will be automatically documented and stored by the technician. This information
is valuable for comparison during subsequent tests and prove useful if
later called upon to provide it . A copy of the results will also be provided
to your company’s Hearing Conservation Manager.
Test Compatible With A Variety of E-A-R™ Hearing Protectors
Protection levels can be validated with many different E-A-R™ Hearing Protectors. This selection includes
specially-probed versions of foam and premoulded earplugs.

As the foam warms to the body temperature, it becomes softer
and shapes to the individual’s ear canal. This ‘shaping’ allows
the earplugs to form an excellent seal against noise, and as
time goes on, the foam continues to soften for added comfort.

Peltor™ Bull´s Eye™ I Earmuff
The Peltor™ Bull’s Eye™ I Earmuff has been designed in cooperation with world class sportspeople in order to develop a
hearing protector that works for marksmen. As an example, the
lower part of each cup is bevelled to avoid interference between
the hearing protector and the rifle butt.
The attenuation of the hearing protector is sufficient to ensure
protection in most high noise situations without being too bulky.
It is essential that hearing protection is comfortable to build
wearer acceptance. It is critical that protection is worn when
exposed to noise and not to distract when shooting. To achieve
this, the Peltor™ Bull’s Eye™ I Earmuff has wide comfortable
sealing rings which are filled with a combination of fluid and
foam, giving optimum sealing and low contact pressure.
The muff has a collapsible headband for easy and protective
storage in a pocket or bag.

Peltor™ Optime™ Push To Listen Earmuff
A whole new series of passive hearing protectors with a manual
listening function is available. The design is as simple as it is clever
- pressing a button on the shell enables you to reduce attenuation
to hear a conversation. This addresses one of the strongest needs at
workplaces that require extremely powerful passive hearing protectors
by allowing communication with colleagues without removing or lifting
any of the hearing protector cups from the ear to avoid the risk of
hearing impairment.
The Peltor™ Optime™ Push To Listen Earmuff means no more cup
lifting, it is an “Electronicpassive” muff – which has one passive side
and one electronic side. Simply push the button to listen, opening
up the ear defender for communication. The electronic function
automatically shuts off after 30 seconds and can be manually adjusted
to close earlier if needed. The product is also available in Hi-Viz green
for workers who need hearing protection and be extra visible – on road
construction sites, airports or other high-risk workplaces.

Peltor™ Optime™ III Earmuff
The Peltor™ Optime™ III Earmuff is a high performance hearing
protector and has been developed for use in extremely noisy
environments. The protection is based on a technology with a double
casing minimising resonance in the holder casing resulting in maximum
high-frequency attenuation.
An acoustic connection between the inner volume and the volume
between the casings in its turn provides maximum low-frequency
attenuation.

Hearing Protection Use and Care
Roll Down Earplugs
How to use
Care and cleaning
Slowly roll and compress foam
earplugs into a very thin cylinder.
While compressed, insert the earplug
well into the ear canal. Fitting is easier
if you reach around the head to pull
the ear outward and upward during
insertion.
Keep the earplugs clean and free from
material that can irritate the ear canal.
They may be washed in mild liquid
detergent and warm water. Squeeze
excess water from the plugs and air dry.
Washing may be repeated several times.
Discard the earplugs if they noticeably
change their firmness or do not re-expand
to their original size and shape.
Reach around the back of your head
and pull outward on the ear while
inserting the plug until you feel it
sealing. This may seem tight at first,
especially if you have never worn
earplugs.
Pre-moulded earplugs could last several
months depending on the type and on
your work environment, hygiene and
body chemistry. They should be replaced
if they shrink, harden, tear, crack or
become permanently deformed. Wash
them in warm soapy water and rinse
well. When dry, store them in a
carrying case.
Hold the large ends of the pods and
swivel them to direct the tips into the ear
canal openings. Firmly push and wiggle
the pods into the ear canal until a snug
seal is obtained. Pulling on the outer ear
while pushing the pods will be helpful to
most wearers.
Most semi-aural hearing protectors can
be cleaned in the same way as premoulded earplugs. Since the band holds
the tips in place to provide an acoustic
seal, do not tamper with it otherwise the
protection afforded by the device may
be reduced.
Earmuffs must fully enclose the ears
to seal against the head. Adjust the
headband so cushions exert even
pressure around the ears to get the best
noise reduction. Pull hair back and out
from beneath the cushions. Do not wear
caps, store pencils behind the ear or
anything that may break the seal.
Cushions can be cleaned with warm
soapy water and rinsed thoroughly. Do
not use alcohol or solvents. Cushions normally need replacing at least
twice a year or more – whenever they
become stiff, cracked, or do not seal.
Do not modify earmuffs in any way, and
especially do not stretch or abuse the
headband as this will reduce protection.

Injuries Are Lifelong
The human ear is designed to pick up natural sounds. Many workplace processes and applications can generate noise levels that are potentially harmful to hearing. When the
tiny sensory hair cells are repeatedly exposed to excessive doses of noise, they break. The surviving sensory hair cells can only process a fraction of the usual information
transfer, thus leading to permanent hearing damage.

are responsible for processing sound vibration into meaningful information.

100% Usage
Damage to hearing depends not only on the actual noise level but also exposure time.
That’s why 100% usage is critical in noisy envronments if you are to get the protection that the chosen hearing protector provides.
Choose a comfortable hearing protector that suits you and your needs.

3M™ Technical
Information
Noise Regulations
The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 is designed to ensure that employees are protected from physical as opposed to chemical hazards. Hearing loss is one of the
most common industrial injuries, and, despite some success in reducing it due to earlier legislation, continues to cost industry dearly whilst making retirement a misery for
many. Noise induced hearing loss is totally preventable using a variety of techniques including process evaluation, engineering control, hearing protectors etc.
Action and Limit Values
All values for noise exposure are averaged over an 8 hour working day except for peak values (impact or impulse noise) which refer to a single event. There is an option to average the noise level over a 40 hour week. An action Value is a point at which certain defined actions must take place.
The Limit Value is the noise level at the ear which must not be exceeded.
Lower Action Value
•
•
•
•
•
•
Assess the level of the risk
Take reasonable steps to reduce exposure
Advise employees of the risk
Provide appropriate hearing protection
Provide training and information about the risk and control measures
Provide Audiometry when risk assessment suggests a risk to health
Upper Action Value
•
•
•
85 dB(A) continuous or 140 pa (137 dB(C)) Peak level
All the above
Wearing of hearing protection is compulsory
Audiometry is a requirement
Exposure Limit Value
•
•
80 dB(A) continuous or 112 pa (135 dB(C)) Peak level
87 dB(A) continuous or 200 pa (140 dB(C)) Peak level
This limit must never be exceeded
The level is at the ear, i.e. takes into account any hearing protection used
