Baggage handlers, mechanics, fuel truck operators, and other employees working on an airport tarmac are exposed to noise levels ranging from 90 to 150 decibels. At the highest end of this range, eardrums rupture, causing permanent hearing loss and long-term exposure to 90 decibels damages hearing over time. OSHA standards demand hearing protection for employees working in such conditions. Magid can help you stay OSHA compliant with our budget-friendly inventory of disposable and reusable ear plugs and comfortable, noise-dampening ear muffs.
Here are the recommended products for this industry. If you don't see what you need, a Magid safety specialist can work with you to address your needs.
