Hearing protectors - Selection and use of hearing protectors

— filed under: ,
The classified list of tested hearing protectors that have been tested to the new standard will be placed on the internet and updated from the information provided by suppliers who have had their devices tested in accordance with AS/NZS 1270. As hearing protectors are tested to the Standard they will be included in the Classified list on the Internet. No further additions will be made to the Grade list. Should you encounter a classified (rather than a graded) hearing protector which is not featured on the classified list enquiries can be made to the WorkSafe NZ National Office who will be able to report on the current status of the device. (Note there may be a time lag between supplier's application and the actual listing).
