Sounds with very high levels are a threat. Personal preventive equipment used include canal caps/semi-insert, earmuffs, and earplugs. It is essential to provide workers with the right protectors for hearing and making sure that they can fit them. Also, one should take PPE that reduce noise to levels that are acceptable and allow for communication and safety (Bell, 1994). 3. Evaluating
