Ear Moulding Training for Your Staff – For Custom Ear Plugs
There are lots of advantages to having custom-moulded earplugs to protect the hearing of your workers – e.g. quality, cost, the environment etc. and for the majority of customers our specialist ProtectHear® technicians will visit your site to take all the necessary ear impressions for you. We are more than happy to take responsibility for this on your behalf not only for your first batch of ear plugs but also for subsequent orders too. However, some organisations prefer to have the flexibility of handling the ear moulding process themselves, particularly for new employees joining and/or any urgent mouldings that may be necessary.
We Will Train Your Staff
For this reason ProtectHear® offers a half day ‘Ear Moulding’ training course for your Health & Safety / Occupational Health operatives, which is free of charge, and includes:
- Ear inspection procedures which must take place prior to moulding
- Unique ear impression taking using a soft hypoallergenic silicone placed carefully into the ear in line with BSA Guidelines
- Bagging up the impression moulds and labelling for shipping off to ProtectHear® HQ for production
At the end of the course trainees competent in the processes covered will receive a certificate and your company will have the flexibility of being able to take ear impressions for additional ear plug orders completely at your convenience. It takes a trained operative approximately 5-10 minutes to take each ear impression.
The ProtectHear Trainer
The ProtectHear® Technicians who deliver the training are highly experienced in all aspects of ProtectHear® ear plugs and hold BSA Certificates in Otoscopy and Ear Moulding.
The Toolbox Talk
In order for your workers to get the very best out of the hearing protection you are providing for them, in addition ProtectHear® offers ‘Toolbox Talks’ at your site for those currently using our custom moulded ear plugs, or those wanting to learn more about fitting and taking care of their ear plugs.
ProtectHear® ear plugs offer great savings compared to disposables as they come with a 5-year lifespan. You may find it interesting to calculate your savings and your pay-back period here using our ‘ProtecHear Costs Savings Calculator’.
