The Costs of Industrial Hazards: Protecting Your People, Equipment and Profits

  • 22 million US workers are currently exposed to hazardous occupational noise, leading to occupational hearing loss (OHL). (source)
  • 33% of those occupational noise-exposed workers have audiometric evidence of hearing loss.
  • 16% have significant hearing impairment. (source)
  • OHL workers’ compensation costs American companies $49–67 million USD. (source)

Save Money & Lower Long-Term Operating Costs with Engineering Controls

The hierarchy of controls helps prioritize and choose workplace safety measures. The purpose of the hierarchy of controls is to remove or minimize dangers at the source to protect workers. The five techniques are elimination, substitution, engineering controls, administrative controls, and personal protective equipment, in order of efficiency.

Elimination and substitution are the most difficult actions to adopt into an existing process or are simply impossible to do because the process can’t be done any other way. Engineering controls are a smart and cost-effective way to mitigate or eliminate hazards from making contact with workers. Engineering controls can be protective barriers for noise control, optimizing ventilation systems for chemical fumes, or modifying equipment with enclosures.

NIOSH reports that engineering controls tends to lower long-term operating costs and can save money through work processes and facility operations. (source)
