What is Hearing Loss Prevention Program?

This Hearing Loss Prevention  (HLP) was created by Environmental Health and Safety  (EHS) to prevent Virginia Tech employees from developing noise-induced hearing loss as a result of excessive on-the-job noise exposure. The Virginia Tech HLP promotes compliance with the requirements of the Department of Labor Occupational Noise Exposure Standard (29 CFR 1910.95) promulgated by OSHA.
