What is a Hearing Conservation Programme (HCP)?

A Hearing Conservation Programme (HCP) is a programme that is implemented at a workplace to:

  • Minimise the risk associated with workplace noise exposure.
  • Prevent Noise Induced Deafness (NID).

The 5 key elements of HCP are:

  • Noise monitoring
  • Noise control
  • Provision of hearing protectors and display of warning signs
  • Training for workers
  • Audiometric examinations

Companies with excessive noise exposure should implement HCP to minimise noise exposure and prevent noise induced deafness.

More information can be found in the WSH Guidelines on Hearing Conservation Programme.
