Bilsom’s New Radio Hi-Visibility Earmuff Improves Worker Safety & Motivation


Bright green earcups and reflective headband improve worker visibility

Smithfield, RI — In efforts to improve worker motivation and overall protection, Bilsom has extended its award winning high-visibility capabilities to its AM/FM Radio earmuff.

Eye-catching bright green earcups and a reflective headband on the new Radio Hi-Visibility earmuffs provide clear visibility, day or night. At the same time, workers can enhance job satisfaction by listening to their favorite radio station or other portable audio device.

Radio Hi-Visibility earmuffs are an excellent solution for hearing protection, worker motivation, and visibility. Bright green earcups contrast noticeably against dark settings, especially in low lighting situations and inclement weather. Radio Hi-Visibility’s exclusive reflective headband glows when exposed to light, increasing overall visibility and safety on the job.

The Bilsom Radio Hi-Visibility earmuffs provide superior AM/FM sound, while its lightweight design and unique headband provide comfort for all-day wear. Its flexible antenna provides high-quality reception and is durable for industrial environments, both indoors and out.

Also new to Radio Hi-Visibility is an AUX input jack, allowing the earmuff to connect to MP3 players and other portable audio devices. Both 3.5mm connection cable and 2 AA batteries are included with each Radio Hi-Visibility earmuff.

Often cited by hearing conservation program managers, the need to keep workers properly protected and motivated on the job is one of the biggest challenges in managing an OSHA-compliant program.

With Radio Hi-Visibility’s patented electronics, listening volume does not exceed 82 dB, allowing workers to listen at safe levels and be protected during their workday without additional noise exposure. Radio Hi-Visibility earmuffs are well suited for manufacturing, landscaping and other routine jobs where workers can use a radio to make their jobs more satisfying.

In addition to the AUX input, Radio Hi-Visibility earmuffs now feature Bilsom’s patented Air Flow Control technology, which provides optimal attenuation across all frequencies when the radio is in the “off” position, and delivers a Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) of 25 dB. Other features include exclusive snap-in ear cushions for easy maintenance and Quick-Click height adjustment.
