Why Buy Quiet?
Noise-induced hearing loss can't be reversed, but it is 100% preventable. NIOSH recommends that workers should not be exposed to noise at a level that amounts to more than 85 decibels (dBA) for 8 hours. Buy Quiet can help you stay below the recommended exposure level for noise.
Play the audio files and compare two same sized yet different circular saws cutting a 1 inch thick piece of oak board. Can you hear the difference?
There is a difference of more than 10 dBA between the two saws completing the same task. This difference equates to a greater than 90% reduction in noise energy, resulting in fewer hearing loss injuries. * Buying quiet makes a difference.
Benefits of Buy Quiet
- Reducing the risk of hearing loss.
- Reducing the long-term costs of audiometric testing, personal protective equipment, and workers compensation. Conservative estimates provide $100 per dBA of savings when purchasing the quieter product.1 This savings is applicable across a wide variety of machinery and equipment.
- Helping companies comply with OSHA and other noise regulation requirements.
- Reducing the impact of noise on the community.
