Do you work with or for a company that has adopted noise control or developed innovative approaches toward hearing loss prevention? Or maybe you know of such a company? If so, help us recognize it and give others a chance to learn from its experience by nominating it for a Safe-in-Sound Award!

The Safe-in-Sound Excellence in Hearing Loss Prevention Award™ honors excellent hearing loss prevention practices in the work environment. Applicants are evaluated against key performance indicators in a review process designed to evaluate hearing loss prevention programs. In addition, an award for Innovation in Hearing Loss Prevention recognizes individuals and/or business entities (e.g., companies or individuals whose work, at least in part, epitomizes innovation in hearing loss prevention, but who are not necessarily a hearing loss prevention program).

Nominations are now being accepted for the 2018 Safe-in-Sound™ awards. The awards are given by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) in partnership with the National Hearing Conservation Association (NHCA) to recognize excellence in hearing loss prevention. The 2018 awards will be presented at the at the NHCA Annual Conference, on February 16, 2018, in Orlando, FL.

The deadlines for nominations are June 2, 2017, for third-party nominations and July 15, 2017, for self-nominations. Additional information is available
