Whether operating loud equipment or wearing a respirator in a toxic environment, workers need to communicate with each other. That’s where CavCom comes in.
With an earpiece that houses a microphone and speaker, our Talk Through Your Ears® earsets pick up a user’s voice through the ear canal and transmit it via a two-way radio, all while protecting the wearer from loud noise.
The Hearing Protector that Fits, custom made for your ears!
Custom earplugs will drive ongoing costs for conventional hearing protectors down and dramatically increase consistent and reliable hearing protection for any employee.
Oil and Gas: New Field Studies on Chemical Exposures
Sep. 10, 2014
On August 21st, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) released preliminary field studies of worker exposures to volatile chemicals during oil and gas extraction flowback, production testing, and maintenance operations. The NIOSH research determined that airborne concentrations of hydrocarbons in general, and benzene in particular, varied considerably across operations. Findings suggested that benzene exposure can exceed the recommended exposure limits and present an exposure risk during certain flowback work activities. Hydrocarbon emissions also showed the potential to generate flammable and explosive concentrations under certain circumstances. For more information on findings and recommendations, see this recent NIOSH Science Blog.
