Hi All

Wondering if anyone could share their experiences with introducing metal detectable ear plugs into their factories.

We have probably 10 people who each day need to wear these for a few hours and I have some questions.

Can the employee reuse them? And if so, how often?
At what point should they put them on? Before hand washing?
How many do we issue to employees at a time or should we put a dispenser in the factory? ($$$)
Should we be keeping a track of who they're going to and how many?

Any tips or tricks for how you implemented the use of them? Unfortunately we are unable to use ear muffs. Employees dont like them they get too hot and sweatt in summer.

Thanks in advance!aeeef4a9c4deb260e1a73fb6d7332fc3.jpg

In a bakery I worked at ear plugs were a must have with the uniform. So it was attached to our bump caps. They were re-usable and I had a pair that lasted forever. I would of course try and keep them clean. The policy was to put them in before entering the production area so that they were in before hand washing. We had extras available with all managers so that if someone from their team needed some they can distribute them. You just have to implement them as a company and if there are individuals who give you any problems, tell them that the company is looking our for their protection and ask why they are having issues. The bakery had various types of ear plugs of different sizes so that it wasnt an issue for different ears.

we disposable and place them in dispensers at each entrance along with hair nets, beard nets. 

These should be put on before washing hands, along with smocks, and other PPE.


Make sure to test your metal detectable plugs, pens, band aids at least monthly.
