Seven sounds you'd miss

Hearing conservation is recognized every October. To illustrate the importance of hearing conservation, the Environmental Health and Safety Office (EHSO) interviewed the Emory community at its monthly "Meet and Greet" to ask what sounds were most precious to them.

EHSO manages Emory’s Hearing Conservation program, which protects workers against occupational hearing loss through medical monitoring and periodic personnel noise monitoring. If you listen to music through your headphones, perform yard work or go to concerts, you may be putting your hearing at risk.
