EYE PROTECTION SHALL BE WORN WHEN :: 

EYE PROTECTION SHALL BE WORN WHEN : PERFORMING OPERATIONS SUCH AS: - HANDLING MOLTEN METAL - CUTTING AND WELDING - DRILLING - GRINDING - MILLING - CHIPPING

SIGHT CONSERVATION: 

SIGHT CONSERVATION A RECENT STUDY FOUND THAT APPROXIMATELY 60% OF PERSONNEL WHO SUFFERED EYE INJURIES WERE NOT WEARING EYE PROTECTION EQUIPMENT WHEN ASKED WHY, PERSONNEL INDICATED THAT FACE PROTECTION WAS NOT NORMALLY USED OR PRACTICED IN THEIR TYPE OF WORK, OR IT WAS NOT REQUIRED FOR THE TYPE OF WORK PERFORMED AT THE TIME OF THE ACCIDENT

MARINE CORPS SIGHT CONSERVATION PROGRAM:: 

MARINE CORPS SIGHT CONSERVATION PROGRAM: ELIMINATE EYE INJURIES PREVENT ACCIDENTS FROM FAULTY VISION INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY AND ELIMINATE WASTE CAUSED BY DEFECTIVE VISION MAINTAINED HIGH MORALE CONTROL OF CONTACT LENSES IN AREAS THAT CONTAIN TOXIC VAPORS, DUST, LIQUIDS OR WELDING FUMES.

MARINE CORPS HEARING CONSERVATION PROGRAM: 

MARINE CORPS HEARING CONSERVATION PROGRAM

MARINE CORPS’GOAL: 

MARINE CORPS’GOAL TO PREVENT OCCUPATIONAL NOISE RELATED HEARING LOSS AMONG MARINE CORPS PERSONNEL

BASIC ELEMENTS: 

BASIC ELEMENTS SURVEY OF WORKPLACES TO IDENTIFY NOISE HAZARDS AND PERSONNEL AT RISK WHEN FEASIBLE WORKPLACES SHALL BE MODIFIED TO REDUCE NOISE LEVEL TO ACCEPTABLE LEVELS ENGINEERING, ADMINISTRATIVE, CONTROLS MEASURES SHALL BE EMPLOYED WHERE POSSIBLE. PPE SHALL BE USED AS A LAST RESORT. PERIODIC HEARING TEST SHALL BE CONDUCTED TO MONITOR THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE PROGRAM

NOISE MEASUREMENTS: 

NOISE MEASUREMENTS IN ORDER TO EFFECTIVELY CONTROL NOISE, IT IS NECESSARY THAT THE NOISE BE MEASURED AND EVALUATED PROPERLY BY THE INDUSTRIAL HYGIENE DEPT

PERMISSIBLE EXPOSURE LIMIT (PEL): 

PERMISSIBLE EXPOSURE LIMIT (PEL) PEL= 84 db(A) twa for 8 hours in a 40 hour work week FOR INPACT OR IMPULSE NOISE -140 dB PEAK

COMMON SOUNDS: 

COMMON SOUNDS Whisper Normal Conversation Air Conditioner Lawn Mower Loud Rock Music Jet (taking off) Barely Audible Quiet Mod. Loud Ext. Loud Uncomf. Loud Pain Threshold 10 80 80 100 120 140 dB

ABATEMENT OF EXISTING NOISE HAZARDS: 

ABATEMENT OF EXISTING NOISE HAZARDS ENGINEERING DESIGN TO ELIMINATE OR REDUCE NOISE LEVELS DAMPING THE NOISE BY MEANS OF MUFFLERS, MOUNTINGS, COUPLINGS, INSULATIONS, ETC. ACOUSTICAL ENCLOSURES ISOLATION SUBSTITION OF A LESS NOISY OPERATION ADMINISTRATIVE CONTROLS TO LIMIT EXPOSURE

AUDIOGRAMS:: 

ALL PERSONNEL SHALL RECEIVE A REFERENCE BASELINE HEARING TEST UPON ENTRY INTO THE MARINE CORPS ALL PERSONNEL ROUTINELY EXPOSED TO HAZARDOUS NOISE OR ASSIGNED AN OCCUPATIONAL SPECIALTY THAT INVOLVES ROUTINE EXPOSURE TO HAZARDOUS NOISE AUDIOGRAMS:

MONITORING AUDIOGRAM: 

ALL PERSONNEL EXPOSED TO NOISE IN EXCESS OF THE NPEL SHALL RECEIVE PERIODIC MONITORING HEARING TESTS HEARING TESTS SHALL BE CONDUCTED AT LEAST ONCE A YEAR AND ANNUALLY THEREAFTER MONITORING AUDIOGRAM

MONITORING AUDIOGRAM: 

MONITORING AUDIOGRAM SHALL BE COMPARED TO THE REFERENCE AUDIOGRAM TO DETERMINE IF A SIGNIFICANT THRESHOLD SHIFT HAS OCCURRED.

15 HOUR: 

15 HOUR PERSONNEL WHO DEMONSTRATE A SIGNIFICANT THRESHOLD SHIFT (STS) ON THEIR ANNUAL MONITORING AUDIOGRAM SHALL BE RETESTED AFTER THEY HAVE REMAINED FREE FROM ALL NOISE EXPOSURE EXCEEDING 80 db FOR 15 HOURS

40 HOUR: 

40 HOUR OCCASIONALLY, AN STS IS STILL EVIDENT FOLLOWING THE 15 HOUR NOISE FREE PERIOD. IF THIS OCCURS, THEN THE PERSONNEL MUST BE KEPT FREE OF ALL NOISE EXPOSURE FOR A PERIOD OF 40 HOURS BEFORE BEING TESTED AGAIN.

TERMINATION HEARING TEST: 

MILITARY PERSONNEL SHALL RECEIVE A HEARING TEST UPON DISCHARGE FROM THE MARINE CORPS. CIVILIAN PERSONNEL WHO HAVE DEMONSTRATED AN STS, SHALL RECEIVE A HEARING TEST UPON TERMINATION OF EMPLOYMENT. ALL PERSONNEL REMOVED FROM THE HCP DUE TO NO LONGER WORKING IN NOISE HAZARDOUS AREA, SHALL RECEIVE A AUDIOGRAM TO DOCUMENT THEIR AUDITORY STATUS AT THAT TIME. TERMINATION HEARING TEST

RECORD KEEPING: 

RECORD KEEPING THE RESULTS OF EACH AUDIOGRAMS SHALL BE KEPT IN PERSONAL MEDICAL RECORDS.

PERSONAL HEARING DEVICES: 

PERSONAL HEARING DEVICES HEARING PROTECTIVE DEVICES SHALL BE WORN BY ALL PERSONNEL WHERE THERE IS NOISE LEVELS GREATER THAN 84 db(A). A COMBINATION OF INSERT TYPE AND CIRCUMURAL MUFFS (DOUBLE PROTECTION) SHALL BE WORN WHERE LEVELS EXCEED 104 db(A). ALL PERSONNEL EXPOSED TO GUN FIRE, ARTILLERY OR MISSILE FIRING IN A TRAINING EXCERSISES SHALL USE HEARING PROTECTIVE DEVICES. ADMINISTRATIVE CONTROL OF EXPOSURE TIME MAY BE NECESSARY

EXCLUSION FROM FUTURE NOISE EXPOSURE: 

PERSONNEL WHO EXHIBIT A PROGRESSIVE SERIES OF PERMANENT THRESHOLD SHIFTS MUST BE CONSIDERED AS HIGH RISK FOR FUTURE HEARING DETERIORATION. THEY MUST BE GIVEN SPECIAL CONSIDRATION UNDER THIS PROGRAM EXCLUSION FROM FUTURE NOISE EXPOSURE

TRAINING: 

ALL PERSONNEL IN THE HEARING CONSERVATION PROGRAM SHALL BE NOTIFIED AND RECEIVE TRAINING IN: - THE ELEMENTS AND RATIONAL FOR A HEARING CONSERVATION PROGRAM - PROPER WEARING AND MAINTENANCE OF HEARING DEVICES - COMMAND AND INDIVIDUAL RESPONSIBLITIES - OFF-DUTY PRACTICES - INDIVIDUAL RESPONSIBILITY IN PROTECTING THEIR OWN HEARING - HOW HEARING LOSS EFFECTS EMPLOYABILITY, RETENTION, JOB PERFORMANCE AND CAREER PROGRESSION TRAINING
