INTEGRAfit for iPad is a professional quantitative fit-testing program for any brand of hearing protection device (HPD).
Workers in many industries are exposed to noise throughout the workday. Regulations and best practices require the use of hearing protection for those exposed to higher levels of noise during a typical 8-hour workday. While the wearing of hearing protection is mandated for high levels of noise exposure, the actual attenuation (noise reduction) achieved varies widely from individual to individual. Hearing protection compliance is difficult and is mainly limited to visual observation. In addition, training on the proper fitting and selection of hearing protection devices is time consuming and subjective. INTEGRAfit for iPad offers a fast, easy and cost effective method of determining the best hearing protection device to use for an individual.
Achieving adequate hearing protection is not simple. It depends upon:
- The proper fit and comfort of the hearing protection device (HPD)
- How you train the employee to properly use HPDs
- Observing consistent and proper use of the HPDs by the employee
