A multi-component intervention to promote hearing protector use among construction workers

A baseline hearing loss prevention training and a follow-up ‘toolbox’ (TB) reinforcement trainings was reinforced by the use of a personal noise level indicator (NLI). Prior to intervention, HPDs were used an average of 34.5% of the time and increased significantly, up about 12.1% after intervention and 7.5% two months after interventions were completed. The increase in HPD use was greatest among the group receiving both TB and NLI interventions; up about 25% from baseline, and this group was about two times more likely to use HPDs than the BL (baseline) training only group.
