Work in noisy (at or above 85 decibels) areas.

All MSU employees who work in an area that has been evaluated to be above 85 decibels should be scheduled for hearing testing by their department. Initial hearing evaluation should be completed during the next round of on-campus testing after hire and on an annual basis. Examples include Power Plant, farm and landscape workers.

If you are concerned that your area needs to be evaluated, call the Office of Environmental Health and Safety at 355-0153 to arrange for a noise evaluation.

MSU Police must have INITIAL hearing testing prior to placement, call MSU Occupational Health if help is needed to arrange.

Required monitoring/training:

  • Annual hearing testing.
  • Hearing Conservation Training available here.
