HearSafe Canada makes custom-fit earplugs by creating a custom mould. The company takes an impression of the ear canal and custom-contours the plug to the worker’s ear. This plug protects workers from measured noise levels in their working environment without over-protecting. As each plug is customized to the employee in question, a comfortable fit is assured. Workers no longer have to dispose of their earplugs, which reduces landfill waste and saves money. A company that has 200 employees likely would use 400 pairs of disposable plugs per day, or about 100,000 per year.
