Choosing the correct hearing protection is paramount to a successful hearing conversation programme. If you offer just one type of device it will not suit all workers and you are more likely to get some workers not wearing their hearing protection.

However if you consult with your workers over the choice of hearing protection and offer a choice, for example a foam earplug, a banded hearing protector and an earmuff, compliance will improve. Ownership and participation will strengthen implementation.
