3M has launched the Optime Alert System, which is a portable sound-measuring system that helps customers select the appropriate type of hearing-protection equipment for use in particular areas.

The meter is deployed at an employee’s workstation and indicates the average noise level in that area and the type of protection likely to be required.

A colour-coding system enables safety officers to choose the appropriate hearing protection option quickly and easily.

This helps compliance with the Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005.

3M also has a range of hearing protection designed specifically for the food industry, which are hygienic, metal-detectable and can be readily cleaned.

The Earsoft metal-detectable disposable plug, for example, offers comfort due to its soft, smooth construction, coupled with maximum protection for high noise environments.

Added benefits for the food industry include it being non-food blue and containing a blue metal detectable cord and an integral stainless-steel ball.

Two reusable ear plugs complete the range of plugs ideal for food manufacturing industry.

Tracers offer a convenient option as they simply insert into the ear and fit most ear canals comfortably.

They also incorporate an easy-to-see, fully metalised non-food blue vinyl cord.

The newest addition to the range is the Tracer 20, which is ideal for lower noise levels (83 dB(A) – 93 dB(A)) as it offers an attenuation of SNR 20dB.
