US Agencies that use the 85-3 criterion in risk assessments of exposures to hazardous noise in the workplace:
Safe-in-Sound Excellence in Hearing loss Prevention Award™
The Safe-in-Sound Excellence in Hearing Loss Prevention Award™ was developed to recognize best practices in hearing loss prevention. The website (www.safeinsound.us) is another resource for best practices in hearing loss prevention. Please consider an application for the next round of awards if your company/organization can demonstrate excellence or innovation in hearing loss prevention. The use of 85-3 is an important component of effective hearing loss prevention initiatives, but considered independently, does not solely make an organization considered a viable candidate to the Safe-in-Sound Award™.
