1: What is the 3M(TM) E-A-Rfit (TM) Validation System?
E-A-Rfit is a service program designed to help validate hearing protection and compliance. It delivers an objective, quantitative measurement of each employee's protection, so you can better protect your workforce while helping employees understand the importance of proper fit.With the E-A-Rfit validation system, your employees will learn how to properly insert their 3M earplug, and you'll have the confidence that they are wearing the right earplug for their environment.
It is Fast, quantitative and objective
Personal Attenuation Rating (PAR) of hearing protectors
Look how well the 3M™ E-A-Rfit™ Validation System fits into your hearing conservation program. Integrating hearing protection fit testing into your hearing conservation program benefits everyone from new hires to high-risk workers.
Establish baseline values for new workers
Helps identify workers receiving inadequate protection that leaves them at risk of threshold shifts
Validate high protection levels required by workers in high noise areas
Fit, Train & Motivate
Provides tool for training proper insertion techniques and to assess proficiency
Motivates employees by helping them realize the control they have in protecting their hearing
Assess & Manage
Improves long term performance of your hearing conservation program
Indicates employees needing further fit training or alternative hearing protectors
Input your noise exposure data and the 3M™ E-A-Rfit™ Software can help you identify the most appropriate hearing protector(s) and help minimize over/under protection
3M is pleased to introduce a dynamic, new online training program to guide users of its 3M™ E-A-Rfit™ Validation System through the process of system set-up, data entry, earplug attenuation testing, and reporting.
The training consists of 7 modules and you can view them and listen to them at your leisure.
The 3M™ E-A-Rfit™ Validation System assists in achieving optimal fit through hearing protector selection and employee training. In less than 10 seconds per ear, the system generates a personal attenuation rating (PAR).
This in-the-ear testing procedure differs from many other systems on the market by providing quantitative data that does not rely on subject response. Fit, train, and motivate every worker using their Personal Attenuation Rating (PAR).
