A Complete Hearing Conservation Solution


Detecting noise levels in the workplace is the first step to ensure your workforce is protected. Complying with regulations, selecting appropriate protection and analyzing noise control options are all easier with 3M solutions for exposure assessment, noise analysis and employee engagement. 3M's accurate, reliable, and flexible instrumentation coupled with powerful software is the innovative solution for your noise detection challenge.


Once you have detected your noise level, it is critical to select a hearing protector that your employees are motivated to wear. 3M has the broadest selection of hearing protectors for a wide range of environments. Trouble fitting your plugs? Need to communicate in noise? Dirty hands? Hot, humid conditions? These are just a few of the many challenges that 3M's innovative products can solve for you. 3M global experts are available for consultation on your specific hearing protection challenge.


You have offered hearing protection to your workers. Now, how do you gain confidence they are protected? 3M™  E-A-Rfit™ Validation System utilizes F-Mire technology to measure the level of employee hearing protection in just 10 seconds. Workers receive their own personal attenuation rating (PAR) and learn how correctly inserting the right earplug increases their level of protection. Learn more about E-A-Rfit validation system.
