Smithfield, RI — New from the Bacou-Dalloz Hearing Safety Group is the Howard Leight(r) brand LS-400 Leight(r) Source earplug dispenser. Built of durable plastic and designed for wall mounting or tabletop use, the LS-400 provides an easy and convenient way for workers to access hearing protectors. In addition, purchasing bulk dispenser refills eliminates packaging waste and can save companies up to 10% of their annual earplug cost.

“Studies have shown that workers are more likely to use hearing protection when it is conveniently accessible to their worksites,” said Bill Sokol, Vice President of Strategic Marketing for the Hearing Safety Group. “The LS-400 can be placed in the lunchroom or by the shop door, and workers can access earplugs with a simple twist of the dial. When you add in the savings from bulk purchasing and the elimination of individual packaging, the LS-400 is truly a cost-effective solution.”

Earplug dispensers are ideal for a variety of industries, including automotive manufacturing, tobacco, manufacturing/line operations, textile operations, health care, printing, food and beverage processing, metal fabrication, construction, pharmaceuticals, forestry and military.

The LS-400 Leight Source dispenser is compatible with a range of Howard Leight earplug designs, including Matrix(tm), Max(r), Max Lite(r), Laser Lite(r) and MultiMax(r). Earplugs dispense into a catch basin and fitting instructions for both roll-down and no-roll foam earplugs are displayed on the dispenser. The sturdy plastic base-stand of the LS-400 also includes snap-in rubber feet for added stability in tabletop applications.
