Title: ●Updating Requirements for the Selection, Fit Testing, and Use of Hearing Protection Devices 
Abstract:

The requirements to use hearing protection devices (HPD) in general industry and construction are inconsistent and outdated.  This project would harmonize the two regulations to provide more consistency, improve the construction requirements so adequate hearing protectors are selected, and allow the use of newer technologies that make it possible to fit test hearing protectors so each worker has personalized HPD to assure adequate protection.
