E-A-R™ Optime™ Alert System
The Optime System is a complete solution to the question of identifying the required
protection, selecting and purchasing the right product where your employees are exposed to
hazardous noise levels.
Our system uses a simple, logically coloured classification to make the selection process easy. Firstly find out what your noise exposure is, then look at the
icons below and establish which class of hearing protection you require. Take note of the icon and choose from the wide range of products featuring the
correct icon.

E-A-R™ Optime™ Sound Check Meter
3M has a simple sound level indicator, the E-A-R Optime Sound Check Meter, that complements
the Optime™ Alert System by establishing which colour code you need to follow.
Use the Optime Sound Check Meter to identify the noise level
Place the meter as close to the work area as possible for a full shift. The meter measures the
sound level and then calculates an 8-hour time weighted average. The symbols light up to the
corresponding noise level. These symbols correspond to an Optime classification.
Match the Optime Classification to a product
Using the Optime classification from the meter, you can find the matching column on the Hearing
Protector Selection Chart on page 5. Choose one or more of the products in that column for use
in that work area.

Protection
E-A-Rfit™ Validation System
Stop guessing what protection levels your
workers are really getting from their earplugs
™
Start knowing each worker's personal protection level and
validate that they are getting the protection they need.
Features and Benefits:
Innovative F-MIRE process is quick, simple and accurate
Unlike less reliable tone response tests, E-A-Rfit is a F-MIRE (field-microphone-in-real-ear) test system. Intervention of the worker or tester is not required,
making this an objective process.
Dual Element Microphone
Measures sound inside and outside the ear
Personal attenuation rating (PAR) for each worker in just eight seconds
The advanced algorithm utilises a transfer function measurement approach to acquire reliable data in only (8) eight seconds at
seven standard (125Hz to 8000 Hz) frequencies. You’ll know exactly what level of protection each worker receives from each
tested earplug. No guesswork.
Data is documented for future reference
Each worker’s PAR results are automatically documented and stored. This information is valuable for comparison during
subsequent tests and may be aggregated to measure the variation in fit of a worker. Results may assist in future workers
compensation cases. A copy of the results can be provided to your company’s Hearing Conservation Program Administrator or
Occupational Health professional.
Application Software
Software provides enhanced metrics for guidance in the application of the measured insertion loss values.
Test is compatible with a variety of E-A-R™ earplugs
Protection levels can be validated with many different E-A-R earplugs. This selection includes specially-probed versions of foam, no roll and reusable
earplugs. Test plugs are sold separately.

Hearing Protection Use and Care
Disposable 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.
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 pre-moulded 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.

100% Usage
Damage to hearing depends not only on the actual noise level but also exposure time.
Just five minute’s carelessness during an eight-hour day can potentially lead to lifelong hearing loss.
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.

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.

cells that are responsible for processing sound vibration into
meaningful information.

cells broken as a result of repeated exposure to loud noise resulting in
permanent hearing loss.

Training and Support
3M’s team of Certified Occupational Hygienists and Technical Specialists offer support and training to meet the needs of
our customers.
They can provide customers:
• Initial and ongoing technical support
• Advice and training for your company, including hazard audits for your workplace
• Can organise for fit testing for respiratory and hearing protection
No matter how effective a piece of PPE is, it will offer little or no protection if it is not fitted and worn correctly. Proper inspection,
cleaning and storage is vital for safety equipment that protects a worker's health and well being.
That is why 3M offers training programs that explain the correct way to fit, inspect clean and store the PPE designed and
manufactured by our company.
Our Specialist Field Representatives are trained and awarded a Certificate 4 in Assessment and Workplace Training.
They can provide quality onsite training and ongoing support.
