Noise and Hearing Loss The Problem Possible Causes What We Can & Can’t Do And The Time to Act USMC Executive Safety Board CDR Stan Jossell, ODASN (Safety) 12 Sep 2007 :  Noise and Hearing Loss The Problem Possible Causes What We Can & Can’t Do And The Time to Act USMC Executive Safety Board CDR Stan Jossell, ODASN (Safety) 12 Sep 2007 Slide2:  The Growing Noise Problem Cost of Hearing Loss for All Veterans (1977-2006) Total = $8,385,892,465 BILLION Millions $ 901,472,784* Major VA Disability Only * Data extrapolated from Dec 06 claims Costs are approaching $1Billion annually Cost of Hearing Loss Marine Corps (1996-2006) :  Cost of Hearing Loss Marine Corps (1996-2006) $ Millions Marine Corps Hearing Loss Facts: FY06 costs: $74,059,704 Total costs: $371,313,708 2006 Marine Corps $74,059,704 Year The Real Problem is NOT the $$ Cost :  The Real Problem is NOT the $$ Cost We are not protecting our people We are placing them in work environments where permanent hearing loss is a given. We continue to design and procure weapon systems so loud that even the best noise attenuation possible can not prevent hearing loss. We are not placing a high enough priority on a future Quality of Life issue for our Sailors and Marines. In many cases we are too late We can’t reverse the damage already done. The JSF engine and the Advanced Amphibious Assault Vehicle (AAAV) will result in permanent hearing loss. PEO TACAIR has accepted the “serious risk” for the F/A-18 E/F and EA-18G Engine Noise. Yet we are actually accepting the probability of permanent injury not the risk of the occurrence. THE GROWING NOISE PROBLEM Noise Levels in Navy & Marine Corps :  THE GROWING NOISE PROBLEM Noise Levels in Navy & Marine Corps Noise Level (Decibel) Single HP Required (85 dB) Double HP Required (104 dB) Max protection w/ latest technology -Technical limit (134 dB) Max protection w/ double HP (115 dB) Slide6:  USN & USMC Sources exposing personnel to brutal acoustic loads Slide7:  USMC sources exposing personnel to brutal acoustic loads Slide8:  Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV) Ops Many Possible Reasons WHY We Have Not Attacked Sooner…..:  Many Possible Reasons WHY We Have Not Attacked Sooner….. Ignorance of the problem – If we wear hearing protection we assume we are protected from injury. We design to specifications that assume double hearing protection adequately protects our people. We don’t feel the financial pain. USN/USMC doesn’t pay the bill. VA pays it as part of their annual budget. Fixing existing design problems after the fact is too costly. Hearing loss doesn’t kill, nor does it hurt. What Can We Do Now?:  What Can We Do Now? Comply with existing Federal (OSHA) standards and DoD / DON regulations. Communications – Raise Awareness and Accountability to the same level as PMV mishaps. Identify and target existing “High Hazard” programs for possible emergent funding to incorporate best noise attenuation technology. Develop better and more effective, personal noise attenuation devices. Consider funding initial outfitting as an emergent Corporate Bill. Invest in noise control research, targeted to work processes with the highest noise level and most personnel. Ensure Future Weapon Systems are designed to a standard that accounts for known attenuation capabilities/limitations. 7. Consider establishing POAMs to address the operational side of noise as well as SYSCOM side of noise.

Slide15:  Federal: OSHA 29 CFR 1910.95, “Occupational Noise Exposure” DoD: DoDI 5000.2, “Operation of the Defense Acquisition System” DoD Design Criteria Std., Mil Std 1474D, Noise Limits, 12 Feb 97, page 65, par 4.2.1, Aircraft Noise DoD Mil Std 882, “System Safety Program Requirements” DoDI 6055.12, “Hearing Conservation Program” DON: SECNAVINST 5000.2, “Implementation and Operation of the Defense Acquisition System and the Joint Capabilities Integration and Development System”, 19 Nov 04 SECNAVINST 4105.1A, “Independent Logistics Assessment and Certification Requirements” OPNAVINST 5100.23G (Dec 2005), “Navy Occupational Safety and Health Program Manual” NAVMEDCOMINST 6260.5, “Occupational Noise Control & Hearing Conservation” MCO 3690.2B, “Marine Corps Operational Test and Evaluation Activity” DoD Noise Standards & Regulations USN and USMC are currently not fully in compliance with the following standards:
