About the Webinar: In this webinar, two experienced occupational audiologists will describe a standard threshold shift of hearing, as defined by OSHA and the general concept of work-relatedness per OSHA’s record-keeping rules (29 CFR 1904.5). The NHCA Guidelines for Recording Hearing Loss on the OSHA 300 Log (National Hearing Conservation Association, 2011), which provides a guideline for assessing work-relatedness, will be reviewed.  In a question/answer format, frequently asked questions and sample cases will be discussed. An open dialogue on participants’ questions on hearing threshold level shifts and work-relatedness will follow.

Presenters: Marjorie Grantham, Carol Snyderwine

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Define a standard threshold shift (STS) as defined by OSHA.
  2. Describe work-relatedness per OSHA’s record-keeping rules (29 CFR 1904.5).
  3. Describe OSHA’s basis for determining recordability on the OSHA Form 300.
  4. Identify factors which should and should not be considered in determining work-relatedness.
  5. Apply this knowledge in assessing potentially recordable losses.

Cancellation Policy: Webinar purchases are non-refundable.
