Training

As part of a number of projects focused on occupational health in construction, Dr. Rick Neitzel worked with Dr. Noah Seixas at the University of Washington to develop training materials intended to reduce the risk of hearing loss among construction workers.  These materials are available below.  The reports are aimed at construction supervisors, and the brochures are intended for workers.  These materials were produced with support from the Washington State Division of Occupational Safety and Health and the University of Washington Department of Environmental Health Sciences.
