    3M offer free one-day interactive seminar for hearing-protection equipment end-users

    DIVERSIFIED technology company 3M are inviting end-users of hearing-protection equipment (HPE) to a free, hands-on, interactive seminar to help them ensure their employees are properly protected, and to get the most out of the company’s range of innovative HPE products.

    The event will take place at 3M’s UK headquarters in Bracknell on Wednesday 23 February, when delegates will have the chance to find out more about the role of HPE in worker protection through a series of educational and informative presentations from 3M technical specialists.

    The 3M team will also explain the company’s Hearing Conservation Programme – an on-site service provided to end-users involving training on the noise levels they face, the health effects of excessive noise, and how to select, correctly fit and maintain HPE products.

    Live product demonstrations will be followed by the chance for delegates to try on and handle a variety of products from the 3M HPE range and to discuss their own hearing-conservation issues with their peers and 3M representatives at a ‘feedback forum’.

    Delegates will also be able to book a session to try 3M’s E-A-Rfit Validation System, an objective, quantitative hearing protector fit-test system which, in a matter of seconds, delivers a Personal Attenuation Rating – the noise reduction level achieved for a given hearing protector by an individual worker.

    The seminar is suitable for anyone wanting to learn more about the importance of hearing protection – whether they are dedicated health and safety professionals or others with responsibility for workplace health and safety.

    Sue Poole of 3M’s Occupational Health & Environmental Safety Division commented: ‘Our offering goes well beyond the provision of products – we believe it is vital to work with both employers and end-users to ensure they are making the right choices and using the products optimally. The feedback we receive at these and other events also provides input to the development of future platforms of personal protective equipment.’
