hearing protection hearing protection en StandardS european StandardS for hearing protection It is a proven fact that noise can have serious repercussions at physiological and psychological levels. In eﬀect, noise constitutes a real pollution for everyone's health. rnr* - <85dB You do not have to wear hearing protection, but it must be made available to all exposed persons. rnr* - 83dB - 93dB You are above the level, hearing protection is compulsory. en352 Standard: head faStenerS and ear plugS The EN352 European standard is divided into several parts. Every part of the standard is applicable to speciﬁc types of protection : You are above the level, hearing protection is compulsory. Ideal for high frequency noise. • EN 352-1, EN352-2 and EN352-3 standards deal with safety requirements and tests, respectively regarding head fasteners, earplugs, and head fasteners ﬁxed on protective industrial helmets. rnr* - 94dB - 105dB • These standards establish requirements in regards to the manufacture, design and performances, test methods and the instructions relating to the marking and information intended for the users. rnr* - 95dB - 110dB • These standards stipulate the provision of information relating to head fasteners acoustic fading characteristics, measured in conformity with EN 24869-1 : 1992 standard, and therefore specify a minimal fading level necessary to establish their conformity with the present speciﬁcation. Only hearing protection products with an appropriate certiﬁcation mark can be selected. All the hearing protectors bear the EC marking required by the personal protective equipment directive. In selecting hearing protection, it is imperative to acknowledge the laws, regulations, uses and techniques. The preceeding criteria underline the general points for consideration when selecting. For further details concerning selection please refer to the European standard EN458 : 1996 (Title : Auditory protection Recommendations for selection, use and maintenance). 416 rnr* - 87dB - 98dB www.jbsgroup.ie | www.jbsgroup.co.uk You are above the level, hearing protection is compulsory. Ideal for high and medium frequency noise. You are above the level, hearing protection is compulsory. Ideal for all frequencies. please note: rnr* recommended noise rating At noise levels above 95dB you will need to get an accurate noise assessment to correctly select the product. Green and yellow marked products are not suitable for use in low frequency noise. Choosing the correct hearing protection for your needs can be diﬃcult. You need to ensure you provide the correct level of protection to ensure that workers are not over-protected and that a suitable product is chosen. E.A.R. and Peltor have devised this easy-to-use selection system that aids correct choice. The 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 above icons and establish which band (RNR) the noise level falls into. Take note of this icon and choose from the products that have this symbol displayed alongside. hearing protection Ensure optimal ﬁt and protection through proper care and maintenance of your earplugs and earmuﬀs! Single-use earplugs inspect Inspect prior to ﬁtting, examine your earplugs for dirt, damage or extreme hardness—discard immediately if compromised. hearing protection care/Maintenance of earplugs and earmuﬀs discard For proper hygiene, discard Single-Use earplugs after use. hygiene To maintain hygiene standards, Single-Use earplugs should be discarded at the end of every shift. Multiple-use earplugs inspect Prior to ﬁtting, examine your earplugs for dirt, damage, deformation or extreme hardness—discard immediately if compromised. clean Wash Multiple-Use earplugs with mild soap and warm water only. Pat dry with a towel and store in a case when not in use. Do not treat with any other substances, as the earplugs may degrade and compromise use. hygiene With proper maintenance, Multiple-Use earplugs can last for 2-4 weeks. Banded earplugs inspect Prior to ﬁtting, examine your earpods for dirt, damage or extreme hardness— discard immediately if compromised. clean Wash pods and bands with mild soap and warm water only. Pat dry with a towel. Do not treat with any other substances, as the earpods may degrade and compromise use. replace Replace pods every 2-4 weeks to ensure optimal protection and performance. earmuﬀs inspect Regularly examine earcups and ear cushions for cracks and leaks—discard if earcups are visibly damaged or compromised. Replace ear cushions if damaged. clean Wash earcups and ear cushions regularly with mild soap and water. They may not be dipped into water. Do not treat with any other substances, as the ear cushions may degrade and compromise use. replace As ear cushions and foam inserts can degrade over time, replace these every 6-8 months under normal wear, or every 3-4 months with heavy use or in humid/extreme climates. 417 hearing protection Sound level MeterS Sound level MeterS PNI01PC 418 PNI07PC PNI06PC PNI08PC 3M™ NOISE INDICATOR NI-100 3M™ SOUNDPRO The 3M Noise Indicator alerts users to potentially dangerous noise levels, helping identify areas where hearing protection may need to be worn. Users simply clip the Noise Indicator to a shirt or jacket; its LED light delivers a clear indication when noise levels exceed a potentially hazardous threshold. The Noise Indicator’s small size and lightweight design make it ideal for workers in a variety of industries. With a rechargeable battery that operates for up to 200 hours between charges, it’s an economical investment in your employee hearing awareness program. The SoundPro SE/DL series provides advanced sound level monitoring and comprehensive data analysis. Available in Class 1 and Class 2 models, these instruments feature large screen displays that enable real-time frequency analysis, and data storing capabilities that make it easy to post-process and evaluate workplace noise levels. The aerodynamic shape of the SoundPro is speciﬁcally designed to minimize disturbance to the sound ﬁelds being measured. From industrial and task noise sampling to hearing conservation, the SoundPro SE/DL series provides accuracy, ease-of-use and, if needed, data for professional followthrough. type product code NI-100 PNI01PC USB Cable PNI01PCU type product code Soundpro PNI06PC 3M™ SOUND DETECTOR SD-200 3M™ SOUND EXAMINER KIT SE-401 The 3M™ Sound Detector SD-200 is a compact, lightweight sound level meter designed to accurately measure workplace noise levels. Green, yellow and red LEDs ﬂash the colour that corresponds to the Optime Alert System, making it easy to select the appropriate level of hearing protection. The SD-200 oﬀers an integrating feature that computes the average sound pressure level, allowing for more accurate assessment of intermittent sound levels. The user-friendly interface makes the SD-200 easy to operate. A rechargeable lithium polymer battery helps lower the total cost of ownership compared to other sound level meters that use replaceable batteries. The Sound Examiner SE-400 series of sound meters are engineered to accurately measure noise levels in highly variable environments. These advanced instruments compute the average sound pressure level (LEQ/LAVG) over the run time and feature user-selectable data logging intervals, helping you to more accurately assess occupational and environmental noise levels. The Sound Examiner also features a SoundPatrol portable printing capability which provides hard copy documentation of measurement results in the ﬁeld.
