For workers required to wear earplugs on the job, there are many factors that can affect which type they will prefer, or will be required to wear. Depending on these factors, you or your employee may choose to wear reusable earplugs – some benefits are listed below.
Benefits of Reusable earplugs:
Are washable and have flexible, elastic flanges attached to a handle/grip
Can be reused many times, resulting in less waste
Cost-effective because they are replaced less often
Can be inserted when hands are dirty or when gloves are worn
Material doesn’t absorb moisture, making them ideal for wet conditions or when workers perspire heavily
Have a moderate attenuation which allows workers to hear more sound when a high noise reduction rating (NNR) isn’t needed

Earplugs only work well when they are used properly. See the video below for the proper steps to take when using reusable earplugs.

Even with all the technology available to us today, surprisingly, effective memo-writing remains an essential skill in interoffice communications. Memos may be delivered via e-mail, but they still should follow the same professional and formatting standards as those printed on paper.
Called memos for short, memorandums are routinely used within an organization to communicate a variety of ideas – from a new sick day policy, to short reports and proposals. Among their many uses, memos confirm conversations, share ideas, instruct employees, and communicate policies. Because memos either request or share important information, they need to be carefully and concisely written so that the message is clear and accurate. A poorly written memo could confuse readers, offend employees, and create a loss of time. Typically, memos are short and communicate a single subject. If you have two subjects to cover, consider writing two separate memos.
Think of your readers and their needs.
Be specific when making your points.
Make your subject line short and descriptive.
Use bullets or numbers to clarify points or lists.
Cover only a single subject.
Memos should be short and concise; try to keep them to one page.
Proofread, checking for spelling and grammatical errors.
Writing a memo is not difficult and does not require much time. Just remember that a memo is in writing, which means it is permanently documented. Your memo represents you and your company; any glaring errors may cast you in a negative light among your peers and subordinates.
