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.
Have you ever wondered about the accuracy of all those smart phone applications now available for measuring noise? A group of NIOSH research engineers wondered, too. They reviewed nearly 200 iOS and Android-based apps currently offered in the marketplace. Based on reported features and capabilities, the team chose 10 iOS apps for further study. Researchers compared sound level readings recorded via smart phone/apps to sound level values taken simultaneously using a standard precision sound level meter. The researchers found that a number of smart phone apps produced readings within only a few dB of the reference measurements. Although smart phone applications cannot take the place of a comprehensive noise survey, they may provide an inexpensive and accessible resource for conducting valuable spot-checks on the go.
