TRU-Net Noise Survey for Workers (Apprenticeship & Journey-level Trainees) Survey Results

This report details the CPWR worker noise survey that was conducted to learn about trainees’ awareness of noise hazards and hearing loss prevention practices, the types of related training provided, and barriers to use of controls and safer work practices. The worker survey was designed as a follow up to the 2015 trainer survey and continued to utilize the formal research side of the r2p TRU-Net system by having trainers conduct surveys with trainees during their scheduled training courses. The survey results identified a need for additional training materials and new strategies to improve retention of the information and training provided. Based on these findings, CPWR developed the comprehensive Construction Noise and Hearing Loss Prevention Training Program which includes modules and exercises that can be used on their own or part of OSHA training programs.
