Nominations Open for 2024 Safe-in-Sound Awards

Interested parties may submit nominations for the 2024 Safe-in-Sound Awards, which recognize companies and individuals demonstrating excellence in hearing loss prevention. Two awards will be given: the Excellence Award, which honors employers who implement comprehensive hearing loss prevention programs going above and beyond OSHA standards, and the Innovation Award, which honors those whose contributions make a significant impact on hearing conservation. While nominations for other companies and individuals are due June 8, the window for self-nominations remains open until Aug. 19. Nominees from Canada, in addition to those from the U.S., are eligible this year for the first time.

NIOSH established the Safe-in-Sound Awards in 2008, and they are co-sponsored by the National Hearing Conservation Association and the Council for Accreditation in Occupational Hearing Conservation. Nomination instructions and tips for submitting a strong nomination are available from the Safe-in-Sound website.
