Frequently Asked Questions

Are Plugfones® Approved for My Workplace?

Every workplace has its own set of regulations regarding personal protective equipment. Most facilities require hearing protection to meet a specific Noise Reduction Rating after evaluating environmental noise level.

In order to find out whether you can use Plugfones on the job, we recommend asking your supervisor or company safety official. When using Plugfones, please adhere to all rules established by your place of employment. If Plugfones products are not approved for general use at your workplace, speak with your company safety official and share our Safety page with them so they can make an informed decision.

What is a Noise Reduction Rating (NRR)?

An official Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) is a certification of the number of decibels a noise level can be reduced by the proper application of the device or item being tested. This rating is provided so that the consumer can choose a device that will help prevent hearing loss given their normal activities and usage.
