Ear Plugs or Ear Muffs? Which is Best?

Many employees wonder which hearing protection device (HPD) is best
from the assortment made available to them.  I’m sure you’re frequently
asked which one is the best. Weighing the pros and cons of each device
can be helpful in this determination.

Assuming your employees work in moderate noise levels, the best HPDs
are the ones your employee will wear and wear correctly. If the employee
prefers the feel of ear muffs over ear plugs, he or she is more likely to wear
that HPD. That said, it’s very important to have a variety of HPDs available
for your employee so he or she can determine which is best for him or her.
