The NIOSH Safe-in-Sound Excellence in Hearing Loss Prevention Award, award honors people and organizations that implement effective practices or innovations to help prevent noise-induced hearing loss and tinnitus among workers exposed to noise hazards.

Safe-in-Sound Award™ winners are recognized not only for their documented results but also for their leadership. Safety and Health professionals worldwide use the published success stories as real-life, high profile examples.

On Feb. 16 at the National Hearing Conservation Association’s annual conference, The U.S. Army’s Tactical Communications and Protective System was a recipient of this year’s NIOSH Safe-in-Sound Excellence in Hearing Loss Prevention Award

The U.S. Army provides earbuds that dampen sounds that can damage hearing while simultaneously allowing soldiers to hear in-person and radio communications. Soldiers can hear gunshots and estimate their direction, but sound-canceling technology keeps the noise level in a safe range.


Safe-in-Sound Award™ winning stories are shared and showcased at special award ceremonies and in press releases disseminated to the occupational health and hearing research communities.
