The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), in partnership with the National Hearing Conservation Association (NHCA), has created an award to be given each year to organizations and businesses with the best hearing loss prevention program. This award is called Safe-in-Sound and will be presented at the 35th NHCA Conference in February 2010 in Orlando.
One award will be given in the manufacturing sector, one in the service sector, and one in construction. An additional award will be given for an innovation in hearing loss prevention, which could be anything from a new product, training program, software program, or other new and effective idea.
The deadline for nominations for the 2010 Awards is July 31, 2009.
