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?

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.
