Excerpt from "Welding and Noise in confined space [1926.52]"
After a thorough review of your response by our office, we disagree with your assessment of the feasibility of a hearing conservation program for construction operations. We have concluded that the hearing conservation program which you now have for employees exposed to high levels of noise is inadequate and does not meet the requirements of 29 CFR 1926.52(d)(1).
