OCT: National Safe Work Month
October is National Safe Work Month, a time to commit to building a safe and healthy workplace.
For everyone’s safety, work safely. Noise can damage your hearing if it’s too loud. Both sudden, loud noises, like an explosion; and constant, loud noises, like working near industrial machinery or blaring background music, can damage your hearing.
The person conducting a business must reduce your workers’ exposure to noise as much as possible. A safe and healthy workplace benefits everyone.
