Hearing Protection

In noisy work conditions, earplugs create a barrier in the ear canal that reduces sound levels and helps prevent hearing loss. Earplugs are more portable than earmuffs, and they're usually more pleasant to wear for extended periods of time and in hot or humid environments. Hard helmets, faceshields, and eyewear can all be worn with earplugs. They're frequently used in conjunction with earmuffs to boost the noise reduction rating.
