Hearing protection

Howard Leight FirmFit earplugsHoward Leight FirmFit earplugs are engineered to enhance the wearing experience for individuals who prefer a firmer fit in order to “feel” their hearing protection devices and are accustomed to the familiar cylindrical or barrel-shaped earplug. Notes Honeywell Safety Products’ Rachel Newport, senior product marketing manager, “The more comfortable the earplug, the longer workers will wear it. That’s more protection for employees—and greater compliance for safety managers—a win-win for everyone.”

Independent lab tests, she contends, reveal the Howard Leight FirmFit earplugs are 40 percent softer with 29 percent lower expansion pressure than most leading classic-style alternatives. FirmFit earplugs provide effective 30 NRR dB hearing protection and are a) easy to roll down and insert, with plenty of time to adjust for a proper fit; b) bright orange in color for high-visibility identification; and, c) available in corded and uncorded versions. Workers can try, compare, and feel the difference of FirmFit earplugs for themselves by requesting a complimentary, five-pair “Ear-To-Ear Challenge” kit at www.howardleight.com/FirmFit.
