3M Hearing Protection Devices Now Added to the Federal Procurement List


An Agreement Between New Dynamics Corp. and 3M Brings Jobs to People with Disabilities.

Five hearing protection devices from 3M have been added to the U.S. AbilityOne Commission’s Federal Procurement List (FPL), effective Sept. 3, 2012, to help military personnel who are often exposed to excessive noise levels. 3M has a strong commitment to hearing conservation and will work with New Dynamics Corporation to protect warriors and workers from noise-induced hearing loss.

“People with disabilities are the nation’s largest untapped labor force and nearly 80 percent of these individuals do not have jobs,” said NISH President and CEO Bob Chamberlin. “It is our mission to help secure work for people with disabilities, and it is particularly fitting that we work with New Dynamics and 3M as their hearing protection products and services can help reduce the number of hearing-related disabilities within the military and other at-risk populations.”
