Howard Leight by Sperian is to launch the Pilot push-in ear plug for occupational hearing protection at the 2010 Safety and Health Expo on 11-13 May in Birmingham.

The company will also showcase its Veripro and Quietdose intelligent hearing protection solutions, as well as the latest products from Sperian Protection’s personal protective equipment (PPE) range including eyewear and fall protection solutions.

The Pilot push-in ear plug for occupational hearing protection features a design that offers performance and cost savings and delivers long-wearing comfort and total control over fit.

The company said Pilot’s ergonomic design provides instant hearing protection upon insertion and defends against occupational noise hazards.

Veripro and Quietdose have been developed to help employers improve individual employee training and enhance the overall effectiveness of hearing conservation programmes.

Veripro measures real-world attenuation of unmodified earplugs using a loudness balancing technique to determine the effectiveness of an employee’s earplug over a range of frequencies.

The result, known as Personal Attenuation Rating (PAR), identifies the actual protection an employee receives from his or her earplug in each ear.

Quietdose is a personal dosimeter that measures and records a worker’s actual in-ear exposure to noise over an entire work shift.

The Quietdose system consists of a small Exposure Smart Protector (ESP) dosimeter that is worn by employees in a shirt pocket or on the back of a hardhat; special earplugs or an earmuff with integrated microphones that record real-time in-ear noise levels; and a connecting harness.
